Day 14 - Don't Live For This Life, But For Your Heavenly Home
"For this world is not our home; we are looking forward to our everlasting home in heaven." (Hebrews 13:14)
When we realise that this earth is not our home and that we are on an eternal pilgrimage, it helps us to hold lightly to temporal blessings and pursue kingdom purposes. It is liberating not to be over concerned with material possessions, as it releases us to fully engage our time, talents and treasures in fulfilling God's mission on earth. This is one of the dimensions I love about Salvation Army Officership!
