Getting Ready

2 Corinthians 4:16-18: Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

It is so easy to look into the mirror and be unhappy with the unkind tricks time plays on our faces and bodies. Living in a world where outward appearance seems so important to so many is something that can sometimes blind us to what is real and lasting. Many of us spend 20 to 30 minutes a day putting on our faces, as it were-and to what end? But consider what equal time invested in God´s Word can do for our spirits. Mirror time in the morning may get us ready for school or work; but time in the Word-now that will get us ready for eternity.
