Our spiritual growth is of more value than our material wealth and needs to be given our highest priority.
Sometimes we focus and invest too much into something that do not last forever like career, relationship with other people, and other commitments. We focus too much on these things that we forget what really matters. Life is too short to not live it for the Lord and not live it according to His will.
Because anytime soon He will come, and the careers we have now, the earthly relationships we have and commitments with them won’t help us get to the next level. These won’t save us, only Jesus saves. It is our spiritual well-being that we need to focus on and not these earthly things and sometimes all we need is a little reminder.
