2 Peter 3:11

"Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness?"
2 Peter 3:11

This chapter is talking about the last days... when the elements will melt and the earth and the works therein shall be burned up. :)  I think that it helps me to get perspective sometimes to read about this, because I dwell a lot on the things of this earth... and my priorities for the most part are things that will dissolve... or, to be completely honest, perhaps for the most part I hide behind things of this world, trying to avoid the things of eternity. :)   In any event, my focus should be on things that will matter in the long run, rather than anything that only affects now.  Hard to do... hard to lift our eyes sometimes, hard to focus on things farther away, or get excited by things that you can't always see very well.  However, thinking about all the things that will be dissolved... what will be left between ourselves and eternity.  Absolutely nothing to impede our view. :)  Let's try to be the manner of person that trusts in things that won't dissolve. :)
