What does not last
From our backyard we can watch the demolition of a 1962 university residence hall.
Nearby is a residence hall under construction.
Someday this new facility may well be considered outdated and be replaced.
Such is life.
What does last
As a boy I heard a song on the radio called “This Ole House”—comparing the aging process to a house falling into disrepair–soon to be abandoned for something far better.
Paul wrote, “For we know that if the earthly tent which is our house is torn down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens” (2 Corinthians 5:1).
This promise is for those who submit in obedient faith to “Jesus Christ . . . the same yesterday and today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).
Is this your hope?
