We are mere pilgrims, transients in this decadent and temporary world. This is not our final destination. Likening it to a trip, the earth is just a temporary stop over to our final destination which is eternity. Whatever we do here will determine whether we will enjoy eternal life with the Lord or eternal death and separation from Him. Man acts as though this world is his final destiny. He works himself to death, laying up treasures and securities for himself and his loved ones but has pitifully neglected laying up treasures in heaven. He may be filthy rich here on earth but a spiritual mendicant in the afterlife. Jesus asked His hearers what would a man exchange for his soul? And what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world yet suffer the loss of his soul? We should not only prepare our children for their future. We should prepare them for eternity.
