The sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory about to be revealed to us. - Romans 8:18 (NRSV)

I tend not to spend much time thinking about heaven but focus instead on enjoying the benefits of this world, like watching movies, eating, and fishing. However, God directs us to “set our minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth” (Col. 3:2).

Today's Prayer
Help us, God, to be thankful every day for Christ’s sacrifice until we find our home in heaven with you. Amen.
