totally insignificant

October 6, 2008

“It’s sobering to contemplate how much time, effort, sacrifice, compromise, and attention we give to acquiring and increasing our supply of something that is totally insignificant in eternity.”

    Hmm…my first thought when reading that was about the pursuit of money. But I think it could mean a lot of things. After all, I am motivated – unfortunately – by a lot of things that will mean squat in eternity. I guess this is the part of “admitting the problem is the first step”? 🙂

    That … reminded me of this:

    Isaiah 55:2
    “Why do you spend money for what is not bread,And your wages for what does not satisfy?Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good,And delight yourself in abundance.
