Tuesday of Week 34 Year 1

Some of us seem to be focusing a lot on life here on earth. While there is nothing wrong with doing so, since we also need to survive as we live our lives as best we can, but one should also prepare oneself for life hereafter. Things, events and situations come and go but God's Kingdom will be forever, as today's reading reminds us: "the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed, and this kingdom will not pass into the hands of another race: it will shatter and absorb all the previous kingdoms, and itself last for ever."

Are we doing our part fervently and consistently so that we can be with God in His everlasting Kingdom? Life on earth may seem to offer a lot, but life with God in heaven offers us more than we could ever dream or hope for. Let us not waste the many opportunities given to us while here on earth to strive towards our eternal happiness.
