Almost everything that we may achieve in this world has an expiry date!.. Usualy we think about that when we buy our groceries isn’t it? What is the first thing we do? We look to the expiry date!..Simply because we know that after that, it becomes perishable. Now, what about our own lives? Our loved ones? All the Possetions, Title, Position, Status and all the assets we may achieve?
Striving for a Crown
24″ Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. 25 And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown.”
Which Crown have you been striving for? The Perishable or Imperishable?
Food for though:
16 Then He spoke a parable to them, saying: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded plentifully. 17 And he thought within himself, saying, ‘What shall I do, since I have no room to store my crops?’ 18 So he said, ‘I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build greater, and there I will store all my crops and my goods. 19 And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years; take your ease; eat, drink, and be merry.”’ 20 But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided?’
21 “So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”
