Hey bud. Let’s pretend we could put a number to eternity. Let’s just say that number is 80 years.
Now lets look at our lifespan here on Earth relative to the 80 years that we are saying hypothetically equals eternity.
Using some theory that I am sure I learned in school……..our lifespan here on earth would account for less than a second of eternity. So, if eternity = 80 years, less than a second of those 80 years would be spent on earth.
Can you see how limited our time here is in relation to eternity? This is exactly why those $200 pair of sneakers that help pay OBJ millions aren’t worth it. Our time is short, buy 20 pairs of $10 used sneakers and give them out to the homeless instead. This is the attitude that will help prepare you for eternity where most of our time will be spent.
Love ya little fella!
I wonder how long I’ll have to wander in the wilderness before I get into the promised land? I can’t imagine how awful it would be without His help to survive here. I can’t even think of what life would look like if I thought this world was all there was for me.
I’m soooooooooooo grateful for God’s promise that death is the beginning of life for we who believe!
Love you bud!
Luke 12:25 “And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?”
You can exercise all you want…….you can even use a stretching machine; but no way can you add 18 inches to your height once you stop growing. A woman can put on high heels and appear to be taller, but it is just appearance; she is no taller than before.
Luke 12:26 “If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?”
Since you can’t control your height, why worry about it? Worrying will get you exactly nowhere but in the hospital. You can worry all you want to, and it will not change one thing. Worry is akin to fear and is the OPPOSITE of faith. Fear is displeasing to God. Without faith, it is impossible to please God.
Son, I have seen what stress does to people. I’ve felt it’s unrelenting pressure for close to 20 years of my life. Jesus told us everything we need to know in these two verses. He was born to save us, we just need to listen to his advice. There is: #HopeMySon
Love you bud!
Hey high schooler.
I know you’ve noticed that our country is a mess. The anger and hate has grown to the point of boiling over . It reminds me of this scene in Ghostbusters where the angrier the people get, the more the evil slime grew. Soon it was taking over…… https://youtu.be/1y8Rqvz-Jcg.
I have a cousin who recently disowned me; not because “I” support the wrong presidential candidate, but because a sister of mine does. (Talk about anger…..you should have seen the text he sent me).
As a nation, we are stuck having to vote for the lesser of two evils. One candidate is a big bully who thinks two Corinthians is the name of a book in the Bible. He also claims to be very religious even after demoralizing women and calling them ugly dogs. The other is a documented liar whose faith somehow doesn’t discourage abortions. She preaches about income quality right after getting fitted for her $10,000 Armani suit.
At this point son, I am at a loss…… Has our great country become so bad that these 2 candidates are the best we have to represent us to the rest of the world? The current President ran on promises that he was going to bring the country together, but his words and actions have only drawn us further apart. The two candidates we have to pick from now are going to make it worse.
Many have little hope, but fortunately I still have mine! My hope comes from God. My hope comes from reading the Bible. My hope comes from the fact that in the grand scheme of things, our time here dealing with all this crap is very short. You see bud, when you compare eternity vs. the time we live on earth, our human life seems like a vapor. Poof and it’s over!
When you put things in perspective you can see what is most important. Always remember the end of your time here on earth is the beginning of eternity in a place nothing like your life in Chandler, AZ, United States of America. It can either mark the beginning of forever somewhere much worse than you could ever imagine, or it could be the start of eternity in a place far better than you could ever earn or deserve. Many will be lost, and some will find their way. The wide road to eternity is easy to drive, but it leads you to the wrong place. Choose the narrow less traveled road my boy!
The only way we will turn things around and save the USA is through revival. As a nation, once the greatest nation on earth, we need to turn back to God and ask Him for help and forgiveness. We need to turn back to the instructions He left us in his Word. I don’t have much hope that as a whole it is going to happen, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try!
This our our mission………..its up to you to choose to accept it.
I love you son!
James 4: 14: Whereas you know not what shall be tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appears for a little time, and then vanishes away
Son, don’t believe what you hear and see in the media. All they show is death and hate. I can tell you we are still a great country full of kind decent and loving people. The problem is the good stories aren’t newsworthy. Don’t lose hope in us. You and your generation won’t have to do it alone!
Love you bud!
Such people will not be overcome by evil. Those who are righteous will be long remembered. They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the LORD to care for them. (Psalms 112:6-7 NLT)
