Most things Don't Endure

We live in a culture where so many people seem to be wanting and screaming, "More! More!" It's as if what they have is just never enough. Sometimes this can be a good thing, and other times it isn't. But really, have you ever had one of those moments where you just wished you had a little more? Perhaps it was in a bathroom that had no more toilet paper. Or maybe it was a hot day and you just finished your ice cold Coke and needed one more sip. All natural things in life eventually run out and obviously don't last forever. However, don't worry because there are some incredible things which do last forever. And as you'll notice with each of these things, they all describe some aspect or attribute of God. The Bible is full of examples such as these I've given and by no means is this an exhaustive list. But here are some that I think are significant in the fact that they last forever. There is His mercy (1 Chronicles 16:34); the Lord Himself (Psalm 9:7); His goodness (Psalm 52:1); His name (Psalm 72:17); His truth (Psalm 100:5); His glory (Psalm 104:31); His righteousness (Psalm 111:3); His praise (Psalm 111:10); His faithfulness (Psalm 119:90); His righteous judgments (Psalm 119:160); His dominion (Psalm 145:13); His love (Jeremiah 31:3); and His word (1 Peter 1:25). What an amazing God! Although most things will and do pass away, it's such a comfort knowing that God and these things will always last and endure forever :)
