Jesus taught His followers, "Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you." (John 6:27) Think about how you spend your time, your money, and your labor. Are you working for things that have eternal significance? Are you laboring for things that will produce eternal rewards? It can be a challenge to move beyond the pursuit of mere pleasure and entertainment, to things of more lasting significance.
|Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.|
|If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each personís work. If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward.|
|1 Corinthians 3:12-14|
