In our modern world, what do we see man work for ? To be popular ? To be rich ? To be admired ? To be served ? To be a world leader ? To be well educated ? Did i miss anything ? To have eternal life ?
In my over sixty years of earthly existence, I believe i am starting to see man's greatest reward. Most of the things I listed above are selfish or self motivated, things I see myself working for.
So what is man's greatest reward ? The answer is found in Jesus Christ. Jesus showed us what life is all about. He showed He came not to be served but to give His life a ransom for many. He came to give Himself , to do the Father's will.
Without the mind and heart of Jesus , we will be serving ourselves,and that is why our world will never last. We will fight for the ownership of the world. We will fight for advantage.
When we look at Jesus we see God in human flesh.Some says Jesus never claimed to be God. My observation is He does not have to say or claim that He is God , because His actions and words reveal He is God.
With all the human beings who have lived in this world, whose life and attitude, will cause this universe to last forever ?
I agree 100%. We have spent too much time in our culture promoting the selfish consumption and the desire to become popular and powerful. The end result is that the overall moral standards have continued to diminish year after year and I am sure that God will not tolerate this for many more years or decades.
