Daily Devotion

10 October 

Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you. For on him God the Father has set his seal.” (John 6:27, ESV)

Why did you join the Army – the money, college opportunities, training, work experience, patriotism? Is your motivation based on temporary benefits or long lasting rewards? Would you do what you are doing knowing that everything you’ve worked for will not last? The question posed in today’s verse suggests the same thought. What are we working toward: a great retirement or the work of Christ on earth? One will last only during this lifetime, the other will last forever. What is your goal?

Prayer: Lord, let me labor for things that are eternal.
