In the physical realm, we gain experience, learn (hopefully) a lot and are able to help others escape some of the more unpleasant things of life. This is true in the Spiritual realm as well. We grow in grace and knowledge. We come to appreciate prayer more and more. We look out for things that harm us and things that are very dangerous. We sometimes acquire the means to help others in practical ways. We appreciate our Lord more and more and love Him more and more. So…we can pray, give, teach, counsel, encourage and be a role model of what the grace of God can do in us and what it can make of us. These kinds of things are a fulfillment of Psalm 92:12-14. ” The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing.” Selah! What we are and do in the physical realm happens for a certain amount of time. Negatively or positively, it can only impact time. What we are and do in the Spiritual realm can help or harm for time and eternity.Let’s let God enable us to live each day with eternal values in mind. Ron
May He from all that is wrong , daily my soul to sever. May I give myself more and more to that which counts now and forever. (R.A.P.).
