THINKING ABOUT MY PURPOSE

DAY SIX

Point to Ponder: This world is not my home.

Verse to Remember: “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:18

Question to Consider: How should the fact that life on earth is just a temporary assignment change the way I am living right now?

I think that if I remind myself of this everyday and at any time something goes wrong in my life eventually I won’t think the worse thing will happen because of the situation. I think that after doing this so many times it will become a part of me and a part of my life.

THINKING ABOUT MY PURPOSE

DAY FOUR

Point to Ponder: There is more to life than just here and now.

Verse to Remember: “This world  is fading away, along with everything it craves. But if you do the will of God, you will live forever.” 1 John 2:17

Question to Consider: Since I was made to last forever, what is the one thing I should stop doing and the one thing I should start doing today?

____________________________________________________________

"While life on earth offers many choices, eternity offers only two: heaven or hell. Your relationship to God on earth will determine your relationship to him in eternity. If you learn to love and trust God’s Son, Jesus, you will be invited to spend the rest of eternity with him. On the other hand, if you reject his love, forgiveness, and salvation, you will spend eternity apart from God forever."
