“Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labour in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.”Psalm 127:1 NIVUK
“What do people gain from all their labours at which they toil under the sun?
I applied my mind to study and to explore by wisdom all that is done under the heavens. What a heavy burden God has laid on mankind! I have seen all the things that are done under the sun; all of them are meaningless, a chasing after the wind.” Ecclesiastes 1:3, 13-14 NIVUK
How big is your dream house? How many rooms does it have? Which are your favourite cars? How many do you have? What did it feel like before you built your dream house and bought your cars? And how did it feel like after you bought them?
How many different places would you like to visit? How many places can you be in at any given time?
If you own the biggest, roomiest and nicest houses and best cars and if you could visit anywhere you pleased anytime you wanted, the most honest realisation is: that you can only be in one of these at any given time, that time is mercilessly unlimited and that once you have achieved your dreams, you will soon leave them behind as your satisfaction and lifetime diminish.
Without thinking about and working for God in your life, every project, every piece of work, every pet dream fulfilled will soon fade away like vapour with time.
The secret of real everlasting satisfaction is found in investing in eternal things. These eternal things are described in the Bible as ‘Heavenly treasures ‘ !
Think about eternity today and pursue everlasting treasures by investing your earthly life and work pursuing eternal things in Jesus Christ today!
Your wont regret it!
