1 Samuel 16:7 “But the Lord said to Samuel, ‘Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.’ “
The Scene: A green field full of flowers–they look pretty today. Although blooms may appear to be lovely, they are only short-lived. Only our trust in the Lord and the Truth of His Word will last for eternity. 1 Peter 1:24-25 “For, ‘All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever.’ And this is the word that was preached to you.”
Matthew 24:35 ” Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.”
Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, knows that everything of this world is temporary. He desires that His people, those entrusted to Him by Father God, will believe in Him, as the only-begotten Son of God, our Deliverer, and will choose to live with Him in heaven eternally.
The desires of the flesh bring only temporary joy and happiness– spend your time and thoughts on Jesus and His Word. Live eternally for Him alone.
