Saharan dust, smog, jet contrails, storm clouds, there’s always something trying to block our view of Heaven. Wars, politics, politicians, the economy, work, family, in-laws, outlaws, there’s always something trying to deter us from attempting to look through the smog to see Heaven. Word of advice: never lose sight of Heaven! It is our hope, it is our promise. Yeah, there are a multitude of things to get us sidetracked and discouraged, but what did Peter tell us? “Cast all your cares on Him because He cares for you.” He’s got your back! In Matthew 6:26-34, Jesus lays it out pretty clearly. We worry about earthly things when we should be concerned with Heavenly things. He takes care of the birds, He clothes the flowers, He’ll take care of you. “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.” Be more concerned with building your Heavenly treasure than your earthly one. Never lose sight of Heaven! Forget the storm clouds, think of Stephen. After delivering his evangelical message, the crowd is snarling and gnashing their teeth and getting ready to stone him and Stephen cries out, ” Look, I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!” Can we get a better example? Blow the Saharan dust away and never lose sight of Heaven!
