Being oblivious to eternity leaves us experts in the trivial and novices in the significant.
- a Randy Alcorn tweet
Sometimes I feel frantic or frazzled. Confused by the options. Immobilized by so many good and beautiful choices. A little like Eve might have felt with all the fruit trees to sample.
Then comes this Alcorn tweet across my path ... and with it a reminder of eternity. Something Eve lost sight of so easily. Something I am in constant danger of losing sight of, too!
But make His Kingdom and righteousness your chief aim,
and then these things shall all be given you in addition.
Years ago, Al Smith penned the words of a simple chorus that we sang in our youth group in the 60s: "With eternity's values in view, Lord, With eternity's values in view. May I do each day's work for Jesus With eternity's values in view."
These words are my prayer this morning
as I pursue "expertise" in the significant.
