“At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” Luke 21:27-28
When I was in the Army there was a Jody call we sang while marching or running that said something like “What’s The Use Of Looking Down, Ain’t No Discharge On The Ground. Sound Off, One two and so on.” Indeed you miss stuff when constantly looking down.
Today much time is wasted looking down at the ‘tiny screen’. Parents I challenge you to take phones away while on trips and engage the family in road games. When walking don’t look down at your phone but look at nature. If you drive and look down a bad accident may occur.
So many may think this short life is all there is and just live for now and self. God’s plan is much greater and expansive. Get in the habit of looking forward to the coming of the Lord. If you are scared maybe your relationship with God needs some work. Where are you at today? Are you prepared for the coming of the Lord? Keep looking up!
PRAYER: Father I pray for people who just live for now and think nothing of Heaven. I pray that you will use me to help share with others just how they don’t need to fear death. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
