Have you ever built a sandcastle only to have waves destroy it seconds later? Or worked on an essay only to have your computer freeze without saving it? When you work hard for something that doesn’t last, it can be frustrating and defeating. Here, Paul reminds us that while there are things we work for that aren’t promised to last, faith, hope and love are eternal. When we put our energy towards building these things, our efforts won’t be wasted. This week, place this verse somewhere you will see it as a reminder to focus your energy on things that are eternal.
