The Important Stuff

God’s Word has a way of jolting my attention straight to the important stuff in life.

Left to my own thoughts I easily become focused on the wrong things…

Then God breaks through the clutter of my mind and lights the way so I can see once again the path that really matters.

 

Psalm 39:4 

“Lord, remind me how brief my time on earth will be.  Remind me that my days are numbered – how fleeting life is.”

 

Psalm 49: 17 

“…they will take nothing with them when they die…”

 

Psalm 49:15

“But God will redeem me from the realm of the dead;  he will surely take me to himself.”

 

The days of this life won’t last.

Eternity.  That’s the important stuff.

If eternity is the important stuff, then what should we focus on?

God and people… GOD and PEOPLE.

God is eternal.  I am eternal.

My relationship with God is eternal.  Thank YOU Jesus!

Nurturing my walk with the Lord is the important stuff.

People are eternal.

Serving and loving and caring for people is the important stuff.

 

Oh Lord, please give us all the ability to recognize the eternal in the midst of all the temporary distractions of our lives.

Change our focus Lord to the important stuff.

 

2 Corinthians 4:18 

“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
