Daily Devotional – Temporal vs. Eternal Things

My son-in law and I took down the Christmas tree and all the decoration late yesterday and it reminded me of the following verse:

Image result for II COR. 4:18

no mirando nosotros las cosas que se ven, sino las que no se ven; pues las cosas que se ven son temporales, pero las que no se ven son eternas. (RVR 1960) 

Yes I know in CONTEXT, which I harp on all the time, this verse is speaking of Christian sufferings v.16-17. However the premise is the same, the things of this world:

  • Christmas tree
  • Decorations
  • Presents
  • Even Family and Friends

can in no way compare, for we can only enjoy them briefly, seen is temporary. But what we can not see:

  • The Father
  • The Son
  • The Holy Spirit
  • Their Grace, Love and Peace for us

that is everlasting and imperishable, unseen is eternal. Where is your heart set today, on the temporal or eternal?
