Our world tends to assign great value to fleeting things—wealth, popularity, position, possessions, accomplishment, approval ratings. Yet each one of these has been found wanting, leading us to crave more rather than truly fulfilling the deepest longings inside of us. Fulfillment, purpose, and satisfaction are found only in Jesus Christ, who radically transforms our values and focuses us on the eternal rather than the temporary. Where does He want to transform your perspective today?
I once thought these things were valuable, but now I consider them worthless because of what Christ has done.—Philippians 3:7 NLT
Prayer: Jesus, transform my perspective. Open my eyes to who You are and what You value. Reach into my heart and mind, and turn my focus away from things that won't last and toward what matters to You, exalting God by loving Him and loving people. I ask this in Your name, amen.
