In Other Words Tuesday


“Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in.
Aim at earth and you get neither.”
~ C.S. Lewis : As Christians, we are to walk by faith, and aim for higher things. Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added unto you. If we aim our life's toward heaven, God will reward us with a good earthly life. But, unfortunately, so many of us, get our aim so off target. We aim for bigger, and better things here on earth, and lose our souls in the process. My friends, keep your eyes on the ultimate prize, heaven, and all its beauty. Keep your aim headed straight toward heaven, this world is not our home.

Amen! This world is not our home. How often we forget. . . I can not wait until I walk with Jesus in Heaven. Wait a minute . . . DANCE with Jesus! Love you, my sister in Christ.

How we need to remind one another of this - and all the more as we see "the day" approaching! Heb. 10:25.

Laurie Ann said...

Very well put, Denise! Since our citizenship is in Heaven, we should be aiming for there, storing up our treasures and learning to live for God.

Hi! I'm Grace said...

Amen, Denise. I used to say (when I get sick) that I am going home (to heaven). Thanks for reminding me.
