“Do not work for food that perishes, but work
for food that endures to eternal life.” John 6:27
Yesterday, I stumbled with this verse and so caused me to ponder about life. In retrospect or even today, contentment is no longer the nature of human. We seek for more, the new and even the latest just to fit in the trend. However, the Lord said “Do not work for food that perishes.” What does it mean? food that perishes is not literally the food that we eat. It’s the superficial things we used to seek like for example cars, houses, shoes, clothes and everything that’s not eternal-worthy.
It’s kinda sad that people today who are considered workaholic, labor for superficial things. I’m not saying it’s awful or terrible to seek for that. What I’m trying to say is that we need to be contented on what we have. Instead of seeking for more, being grateful for what you have now is enough for the Lord. We have a kind and contented Lord who enjoys hearing our little prayer and thanksgiving.
On the different note, we have to work for food that endures to eternal life. We have to give, share our blessings, please the Lord, and live with the word of God. The Lord even said ” “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.” John 6:35 Imagine the world with people who work for food that endures to eternal life. What can we ask for?
Even at the end of life where The Lord is going to judge us, asking what we’ve done good while we’re on earth, we can never brag this superficial things that’s not worthy in the eyes of the Lord. Remember So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18
It’s the unexplainable feeling when the Lord said to us ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ Matthew 25;21.
Much love everyone =) ♥
