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?
The Two Greatest Commandments
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it. Love your neighbor as yourself.” — Matt. 22:37 This is the only acceptable attitude we can have towards God if we truly want to be set apart and used by God to make a difference in this world; loving not as the world loves but loving as God loves. It is the foundation upon which everything we do for Christ must rest. If you have a desire to make a noticeable difference in this world for Christ, it will be through your love for others.
