Football season is full steam ahead and Philadelphia has had a great first half of the season. Recently I was checking on prices for a college game and the cheapest seats I found were higher than I expected. Pro seats are much higher. I enjoy fall sports, but I was brought back to the reality that while I can invest in fun activities, I must remember to invest in eternity. Eternity awaits everyone, and we often don’t think about it. We may change our thoughts or distract ourselves, but everything about this world is temporary. Seasons change, and sports teams are different every year. They play for their rewards, and fans spend their money to watch for a short time of entertainment. While we can enjoy a game sometimes, if we can invest much more in God’s plans with our time, energy or money, we can know that investment lasts forever, because God never forgets our obedience.
For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.
1 Tim. 4:8
