We are merely moving shadows, and all our busy rushing ends in nothing. We heap up wealth not knowing who will spend it. And so Lord, where do I put my hope? My only hope is in You.-----Psalm 39: 6-7
Our lives that we live here on earth are like a vapor, HERE today and GONE tomorrow. And the intriguing part of ALL of this is that mankind puts most if not ALL of his efforts into making sure they are building up WEALTH and PROSPERITY for their children. And this accumulation of WEALTH MAY OR MAY NOT end up with their offspring.
After they have RUSHED about, spending MOST, if not ALL, of their PRECIOUS, but relatively, SHORT time stock-piling their WEALTH, they have NO time to PREPARE for what is MOST IMPORTANT, their ETERNITY.
They have accumulated MUCH WEALTH, that in a SHORT period of time will be gone to who KNOWS where, or to WHOM it may end up with. And my dear friends, they have NO say in the matter, because they have gone to their OWN destination or PLACE where they will spend ALL ETERNITY, and were NOT prepared for it. They have SPENT ALL their PRECIOUS time preparing for ANOTHER'S FUTURE here on earth, but have NOTHING laid up for THEIR ETERNITY. So, I ask, "where is their HOPE?" The Psalmist says that his ONLY HOPE is in the LORD. Where is your HOPE?
If you have put ALL or MOST of your PRECIOUS TIME in preparing for your or someone else's FUTURE here on earth, and have NOTHING laid up for YOUR ETERNITY, well the GOOD NEWS is that you can START PREPARING for your ETERNITY, NOW, by: CONFESSING your sins to God and asking for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE, in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION. Do it NOW, while you STILL can. He's waiting!!!
