"Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away." Luke 21:33
We as humans live a very physical life. We spend hours shopping for stuff we want and not just need, we worry about getting a good career, and putting enough food on the table at every meal. We act in such a way that we hope will please others. We sometimes spend hours in front of a mirror in the mornings.
But all of this is just physical.
God reminds us that the earth will one day pass away. All our earthly prized possessions will mean nothing. The only thing that will matter is our faithfulness to God.
We can also be comforted in knowing that God's words will never pass away. What he said in the Bible is true yesterday, today and forever.
