Revelation 3:11 “I am coming quickly. Hold fast to what you have, so that no one may take your crown.”
It is always fascinating to me that most of us live life as if we are going to live forever. We try to build our kingdom, our empire, and our wealth. Long after we need not worry about these things, we continue to be driven by them.
Scripture tells us that we are a vapor that appears briefly and disappears. Life is all too short. We need to treasure each day as if it is our last, and use it to build God’s kingdom.
The reward for us in heaven is the crown of life. Let’s remember that this is what we are working toward.
Lord, I praise You and worship you always for the gift of wisdom. May I always ask for this great gift in order to serve your people.
Do you live life to the fullest with those around you by using the wisdom God has given you? Do you share the gifts, talents and wealth of this world with others? Our Lord provides these gifts and wants us to share them with all His children.
