"Nothing taken for granted; everything received with gratitude; everything passed on with grace." G. K. Chesterton

January 19, 2005


The apostle Paul tells us, "The things which are seen are temporal, but the things that are not seen are eternal" (2 Corinthians 4:18b). It is the eternal things in this world that cannot be burned, bruised, or outdated. ATM machines will one day be no more. Airplanes will be historical artifacts. Computers will be buried in archeology. Yet marching above time is our champion Jesus Christ, whose voice thunders that he makes all things new! One day the wrinkles with be smoothed by resurrection. And all the things in life that pointed us toward spiritual and emotional maturity will bring our gratitude, for they pointed us toward the things that cannot perish, neither can the gods or kingdoms of this world take them away.
