Always

Always…

We live in an anti-always culture. It’s based on constant change. The only thing that’s permanent in our culture is that there’s nothing permanent in our culture.

What’s in today is gone tomorrow. Our attention spans are shorter and shorter. Thoughtful discussions are replaced by sound bytes. Family dinners are replaced by fast food.

An anti-always culture, in turn, produces people who always lack the quality of always, the quality of consistency, of endurance, of sacrifice, of faithfulness, of stability, of integrity, and of an inner core of morality, that which can never be moved.

That’s why it’s so crucial that we hold to what never changes. For we have an always faith, an always book, an always truth, an always Redeemer, an always Friend, and an always God.

Buck the trend, fight the system. Take what is disposable, and dispose it. Be done with that which is made to be done with. And base your life, your convictions, your ambitions, your pursuits, your everything on that which is always.

For what is good and real is not disposable. Do this… and you’ll have an always hope, an always love, an always peace, and an always joy.

God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? Numbers 23:19

Today, seek to put less emphasis on that which is temporary – and root your heart and mind on the things which are eternal.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
