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Someday this new facility may well be considered outdated and be replaced.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?
