Take Heart!

1 Peter 1:24-25
(RSV)

...for ďAll flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls, but the word of the Lord abides for ever." That word is the good news which was preached to you.

Although power and glory on Earth are tempting, we should strive to live a fulfilling life in obedience to God's wisdom and Christ's teachings of stewardship, compassion, mercy and love.
