Invest In Hope: When some were speaking about the temple, how it was adorned with beautiful stones and gifts dedicated to God, Jesus said, “As for these things that you see, the days will come when not one stone will be left upon another; all will be thrown down.” Luke 21:5-6
Jesus’ words remind us how easy it is to take confidence in things that will not last. Instead, he invites us to invest in eternal things, like love, care for another, generosity, mutual support, acceptance.
