A Better Possession

f4da16649da99747564d29661ca7fbc8Let me close with the words of Heb. 10:34. “For you had compassion on those in prison, and you joyfully accepted the plundering of your property, since you knew that you yourselves had a better possession and an abiding one.” The writer recalled how they suffered with other people of faith. They visited those in prison for their faith. They lost their property. But they joyfully accepted it. They knew that they had a better possession, a lasting one.

That is how people of faith view their earthly possessions. It’s okay for them to lose their earthly properties. They know that they will receive a better and eternal property.

To live by faith is to prioritize the things of heaven. You will not live according to the priorities of this earth.

Conclusion

Re-order your priorities according to the priorities of heaven. Re-focus your life from earthly things to heavenly things. Reform your life so that you will live according to the will of God.
