Candlestick Park in San Francisco recently hosted its last sporting event. The stadium is scheduled to be demolished soon. Mike Gay has been the stadium chief for the past 35 years, and he is not sure that he wants to watch the implosion of Candlestick Park. He said: “I’ve seen other stadiums get imploded. Here I’ve been trying to maintain it and keep it looking good and these guys are talking about, ‘We can bring this thing down in 100 seconds.’ Whoa.”
Whoa indeed! Imagine your life’s work being destroyed almost instantly.
That’s the feeling that many people will experience when Jesus Christ returns. “But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.”—2 Peter 3:10.
It seems that all that will endure will be the work that we have done for Jesus and his everlasting kingdom. That gives us something to think about.
