Our culture constantly bombards us with the thought that we need what we do not have and that we never have enough. Before we know it our focused attention is on the temporary things of this world instead of the eternal things that will last forever.
As we begin to seek God every day through his word and through prayer, He begins to give us a new perspective of contentment in this life. His greatest desire is that we love Him and seek Him above all else and that we love others as He has loved us! God and people’s souls are the only things that are going to last for eternity!
Father I thank you that you are my creator and the creator of this beautiful world in which I live! I know that it is your desire for me to enjoy this life to the fullest, but for me to fully live my life I must love you above all else. As I go throughout this day I pray that you will help me make a priority of the eternal things! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
