Monday, May 1st: 1 Kings 10-11; Luke 21:20-38 ~ Kezia

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is 1 Kings 10-11; Luke 21:20-38

"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.

Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage: 1 Kings 12-13; Luke 22:1-30

Luke 21:36
Keep alert at all times. And pray that you might be strong enough to escape these coming horrors and stand before the Son of Man.”

A clear warning to keep alert at all times, to live for God and keep Him first now and always.

A good reminder to invest in and prioritize eternal things.
