In Context: Building for Eternity

This year Good Friday and Tax Day are the same day.

It’s easy to mistake one as being about eternal things, and the other as only being about temporary things. In truth, both can be about eternal things.

In the well-known passage about eternal rewards Paul wrote to the Corinthians, actions with the wood, hay, and straw can have as much of a possibility of lasting for eternity as actions with the gold, silver, and precious stones. The difference is in the foundation on which we are building—Jesus Christ.
