When you strip it all away,
When you remove all of the extra fluff,
When you focus on what is truly important,
You focus on God.
God is everything.
He is the beginning and the end.
He is eternity.
Eternity is infinitely longer than life on earth.
Next to God, people come next.
How much are you praying for the people God puts into your life?
Praying they will know God with all of their heart, soul, and mind?
Because that’s all that matters.
Jobs come and go.
Houses are built and eventually crumble away.
Children are born and grow, leaving to live on their own.
Meals are prepared and eaten.
There will always be more to do.
There’s only one thing certain that will last forever.
Your relationship with God.
And your loved one’s relationship with the Almighty.
Again I ask,
How much are focusing your temporary life to bring more with you to heaven?
It’s easy to let the pleasures of this world distract your focus from things eternal.
God wants us to enjoy this life, yes.
But make sure you also focus on your people.
They need your prayers more than you know.
