When I graduated high school (20 years ago!), a dear lady from church, Dot, gave me a plaque with C.T. Studd’s quote, “Only one life will soon be past, only what’s done for Christ will last.” I remember it because I still have it. Seventeen moves later, and it is one of the only things I have left from that time. It serves as a reminder that the only things I do that last for eternity are what is done for Christ. Anything I do for myself, apart from Christ, will not last. I am not to seek my interests before that of Christ. I am not to care for my glory, only that of Christ. So easy to say, so hard to do.
Philippians 2:21: “All the others care only for themselves and not for what matters to Jesus Christ.”
