avoid the bucket

Although I haven't read much *extra* over the past few months, I stumbled across a book when looking for another book and have been more avidly reading it before bed perhaps because it goes along with the theme we've been talking about in our Wednesday evening Bible study on First and Second Peter.  

So, I'll leave you with something to *chew* on today:

"In hindsight, we can look back and realize that most of our lives have been poured into the bottomless bucket of this world, and that, after all is said and done, the bucket is empty.  Worse yet, imagine stepping onto the shore on the other side and realizing that we have brought nothing with us of eternal worth.  Think of looking into the face of our eternal God, realizing that our lives reflect only earth-side existence rather than the meaningful, profound realities of the kingdom." ~ from Eternity by Joseph M. Stowell

Can you tell that I just read through the section of how even Christians get caught up in this present world attempting to make their mark in society by doing those things that will get them ahead, give them honor, add prestige to their lives using all their time, energy, focus, and attention on these things that have absolutely no eternal value?


You may need to *chew* on this for longer than today, eh?  

Here's to praying for a perspective that sheds eternal light on our activities whether they be those daily tasks of mothering, things that look too little to matter, or big projects the Lord is nudging us to attempt!
