Lent – Monday – March 28

1 Corinthians 3:11

Nothing lasts forever, and that’s a good thing for sales. Our whole economy is based on consumption. What is fashionable today must not be so tomorrow, for if it is, sales will cease. We are told to search and strain to find the latest trend, idea or hero. Once we find it, we can get on with building our lives. Then another trend appears and we have to start all over again. Wouldn’t it be better if some things were certain, if we could build our lives on a sure foundation? Yes. Build your life on Jesus. He is for keeps. His love for you never shrinks or goes out of style.

Lord, let me build my life on you. Amen.
