Staying on point

But don’t be so concerned about perishable things like food. Spend your energy seeking the eternal life that the Son of Man can give you. John 6:27a

We live in a world driven by the immediate and the necessary, a world where our attention is constantly diverted toward perishable things that look really important. Jesus gave us eternal life as a free gift; but it takes deliberate seeking and vigilant prioritizing to live a life in this world that seeks out the eternal point in each situation and responds to that point.

Lord, when the pressure builds help me stay on the eternal point.
