    Purpose driven life -day 6

    Day 6 - Life is a temporary assignment.

    Alot about how time on earth is short and eternity is long. Earth is not our home but similar to visiting a foreign country. Seems like we have covered that already but some interesting passages.

    "When we flirt with the temptations of this world, God calls it spiritual adultery. The bible says, 'You are cheating on God. If all you want is your own way, flirting with the world every chance you get, you end up enemies of God and his way."

    "The fact that earth is not our ultimate home explains what, as followers of Jesus, we experience difficulty, sorrow, and rejection in this world. It also explains why some of God's promises seem unfulfilled, some prayers seem unanswered, and some circumstances seem unfair. Our time on earth is not the end of the story"

    "You will not be in heaven 2 seconds before you cry out, "Why did I place so much importance on things that were so temporary? What was I thinking? Why did I waste so much time, energy, and concern on what wasn't going to last?"

    my thoughts.

    The last two chapters tell me to take care of the things God has entrusted to me, but do not value them beyond that. To not get upset over material things.
