Some soldiers on maneuvers were setting up their tents after a long day of hiking. As they were hammering in the stakes, the voice of their commander rang out, “Don’t drive your stakes too deep; we’re moving on in the morning!”
Too many Christians are driving their stakes too deep. That is to say, there is a danger of becoming too enthralled with this world and its pleasures and distractions. Let us never forget that we will soon be moving on!
“But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ.”—Philippians 3:20.
