We have each been given a brief span of years on this earth. During our lifetime we can choose to invest our thoughts, our time and our treasures in the things of this world, or we can choose to invest them in eternity. Jesus said if we live for earthly things, we will actually miss life altogether, but if we live for Him and the gospel, we will discover what true life really is. So, when you take an honest look at your life, where are you investing yourself?
Do You Know Who You’re Talking To?
How do you come to God in prayer? Do you see Him as a distant being who probably has little or no personal interest in you, or perhaps as a stern boss you are reluctant to approach? The opening line of the Lord’s Prayer teaches us the correct view we must have of God. He is our loving Father, but He is also the holy God of heaven, and in that, we find both the comfort and the confidence we need to pray.
