We can focus and worry on a lot of things that are temporary. Things that are only here for a short time and then gone. Money, Food, Jobs. We worry about what to wear, if we've put on too much weight, and if the color we painted on the wall matched. If the gift we got for our friend cost enough, if we are liked. We worry about what the gossip is, what we heard, most of which is make believe. Temporary things are like a broken wagon. Or a new car. Even time is temporary.
Eternal things are what matter, things like God, The Holy Spirit, Jesus. Satan, and how we are living our lives. Love is eternal. The things we invest in our generations. Our marriages, our friendships, our faith in Jesus. There is a difference between temporary and eternal, just like there is a difference between Truth and Lies. Truth is always full of excitement, we should choose to speak it. You have to resist the temptation to believe and share lies, and worry about temporary.
Your word, Lord, is eternal;
it stands firm in the heavens.
Your faithfulness continues through all generations;
you established the earth, and it endures.
Good Morning God, what a wonderful world you have made through Jesus. All you have made shows your eternal love for us. Many temporary things we have made shows our sinful hearts. We are glad that you made us and that Jesus saves us when we become spoiled by sin. Help us to become more like Jesus by giving us the Holy Spirit and help us hear and obey your word. AMEN
