DAILY DEVO...there is no perfect world until we get to heaven

We live in a culture that is selfish and self-absorbed, maybe now more than ever before. It seems the more we have, the more we want. Evidence proves that this is how most of the  world thinks, but it isn't how all of us have to think.

Showering ourselves with luxuries will not make us any happier, or content with life. In fact, I would say, the more we have, the bigger the headaches.

If we seek the treasure, the one that will bring real satisfaction, then we must die to self and live for God.

Jesus taught about this in John 12:24-25. Here, Jesus gives a little gardening lesson to teach a profound truth: a plant doesn’t grow unless a seed dies first.

You and I will not produce godly fruit in our life until we die to our own desires and ambitions.

(John 12:25) "Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life."

Too many people are trying to attain the "perfect" life here on earth, but will be sorely disappointed to find out that they planted the wrong seed.

Don't miss out by living for the wrong things, live for God!
