For I want you to understand what really matters, so that you may live pure and blameless lives until the day of Christ’s return.” Philippians 1:10 NLT
Do you know what REALLY matters? Is your life wrapped up by just trying to survive another day? Are you chasing the wind by trying to pursue a "better" life? Pleasure seeking and materialism (the tendency to consider material possessions and physical comfort as more important than spiritual things) can grip your soul. Jesus warned us about this perspective in Matthew 16:24-26 “Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it. And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul?” NLT Let us think of one simple fact: One day you will die or Christ will return first. Are you living for what really matters??
