Fertilizer & Goggles

I’m betting that unless you’ve decided to pull the covers over your head today, you’re going to shuffle through Facebook, scan a blog or two, read a newspaper, scroll through email or watch television, which will ensure that this world’s ample supply of fertilizer finds its way to your face.  Bam.

Translation:  Get your gospel goggles on, baby.  For those equipped to see past the passing away world and its offered issues, to the unseen and eternal realm, beware of focusing upon today’s crap as though it is anything more.  It is helpful only as it points to what is truly true. 

The apostle Paul wrote to the Corinthians, who knew all about worldly fertilizer:

“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.  For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.  So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”  (2 Corinthians 4:16-18)

So, strap on your goggles.  It isn’t always easy, but you can do it.
