While out camping for a week my family couldn’t help but notice so many nice RVs. There were many travel trailers and motorhomes much nicer than the one we were in.
It was a wonderful opportunity to talk to the children about both being thankful and to remind them that our possessions don’t go with us.
I pursued the world for years. I thought the world had it right. Get enough money, success, respect or whatever and you can consider yourself to have made it. But anything built on the wrong foundation is worthless.
For no one can lay any other foundation than what has been laid down. That foundation is Jesus Christ. If anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay, or straw, each one’s work will become obvious. For the day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire; the fire will test the quality of each one’s work. If anyone’s work that he has built survives, he will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned up, he will experience loss, but he himself will be saved — but only as through fire.
1 Corinthians 3:11-15 CSB
Make no mistake. There is a war going on. It is a battle with eternal consequence. The enemy has a huge arsenal of weapons and lately I’ve found one of the best weapons to be busyness. Have you ever found yourself wondering where the week went? I think for me anyway, those weeks probably resulted in very little being built on the proper foundation.
Pray much. Read God’s Word often. Encourage others daily. Build your life on what matters. That way you store up treasure where it lasts.
