Don't be daft

"But Christians make their evaluations in light of eternity. "The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever ( 1 John 2:17). Pity the person whose self-identity and hope rest on transient things. Ten billion years into eternity, it will seem daft to puff yourself up over the car you now drive, the amount of money or education you have received, the number of books you owned, the number of times you had your name in the headlines. Whether or not you won an Academy Award will prove less important than whether you have been true to your spouse. Whether or not you were a basketball star will be less significant than how much of your wealth you generously gave away. The one "who does the will of God lives forever" (1 John 2: 17)
