"What I mean, brothers, is that the time is short ... for this world in its present form is passing away."  1 Corinthians 7:29A, 31B

Deferred gratification is not an easy lesson, especially for children. When eyeing a cheap trinket, the lesson of saving their allowance so they can buy something better in the future is a hard sell. At that age, time moves so slowly it seems like the future will never come; a month might as well be a decade.

Certainly as adults our sense of time is more developed. Yet when it comes to matters of eternity, we are still very much like children in our comprehension, aren’t we? We overvalue earthly concerns like career and marital status, because we cannot perceive how quickly they will pass away. At the same time we undervalue the things which will endure into eternity.

What does it look like to be driven by kingdom priorities? fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross Hebrews 12:2a. With the same joy before us, we fix our eyes on Jesus and obey Him. Content with the life He has given us, we love others sacrificially, make disciples and, in doing so, invest in eternity.

Scripture Focus: 1 John 2:1-17  

Insight: True contentment requires eternal perspective. We must be convinced that what God has in store for us far surpasses all this world has to offer.

Reader's Prayer: Dear God, The older I get, the more I understand how short time is here on earth. Help me to gain your eternal perspective. I put my trust in Your Son, Jesus as my Lord and Savior and will do my best to walk closely with Him for the rest of the time I have here on earth. In Jesus' Name, Amen

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
1 John 5:11-12 cheers
