Does it matter how we spend our after we begin our journey with God? Absolutely!!! Our focus and attitudes in life as God’s Kid is the building on top of our foundation of eternal life. We are saved by grace, but still are called to set our hearts and minds on eternal things.(Colossians 3:1-2). It is really critical that our life as a child of God resembles the selfless and passionate pursuit of Him. As we seek him and become like him, not only are we blessed on earth but we are building an amazing treasure in Heaven. If, as his kids, we focus on building an earthly kingdom—we, will find that our heart reflects a stronger desire to be on earth. We will miss countless blessings here and a bounty when we join him for eternity. Help me Lord to live with an eternal perspective.
God Bless You
10 Because of God’s grace to me, I have laid the foundation like an expert builder. Now others are building on it. But whoever is building on this foundation must be very careful. 11 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one we already have—Jesus Christ. 12 Anyone who builds on that foundation may use a variety of materials—gold, silver, jewels, wood, hay, or straw. 13 But on the judgment day, fire will reveal what kind of work each builder has done. The fire will show if a person’s work has any value. 14 If the work survives, that builder will receive a reward. 15 But if the work is burned up, the builder will suffer great loss. The builder will be saved, but like someone barely escaping through a wall of flames.
