“knowing [with all certainty] that it is from the Lord [not from men] that you will receive the inheritance which is your [greatest] reward. It is the Lord Christ whom you [actually] serve.”
Remember life is about planting seeds that grows to be trees that will give wood to construct your home in heaven. Our permanent life is in heaven.
Sow the seeds that will lead to a glorious life where it counts. Everything means everything in heaven.
One spends hours cooking an elaborate meal, and in minutes it’s gone. There’s only one thing that counts - it is what and whose seed are you planting? We are heaven bound.
Stay true to the mark because all else is vanity.
