1 John 2:25

"And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life."
1 John 2:25

Eternal life.  Let's think about that for a minute.  ... Forever.  Never dying.  No, don't slip into thinking that we'll be vampires. :)  Better eternal life than that.  We still get souls, we don't have to prey on other beings, we'll have perfect health, and we might even get to learn how to walk on water.  (I'm hoping for that.)  Compared to the things that we tend to claw over in our everyday lives,  eternal life has everything else beat.  And God has promised it to us.  ... Isn't that amazingly cool?
Today, let's focus on the things that God has promised us, and worry less about things that are temporary.  Let's let God help us out with our priorities, so that in the end we won't have been living for and fighting over things that don't matter... but lifting and supporting and loving, and building things that can last: relationships, education, a Zion community.
