I am reading a book that has changed a lot of the ways I think about things of God. One statement really got me.

"Your life is free to be radical when you see death as your reward." The book “Radical” by David Platt.

That’s it isn’t it? That is why we worry. Because we don’t see death as our reward, we instead see death as our punishment. You see, we try to make this world heaven and it will never work. We try to have as many comforts as possible. We try to play politics all the time so we can put in place protection for us and our family. If we can get all these things in place then we will be secure. No, No. No. There is NOTHING in this life that is secure except Jesus and death of our body. Everything else will be tossed to and fro like the waves in the ocean. When we can start to believe that this world will soon pass away then we are free to grab onto OUR REAL HOME. Why settle for second best. Why worry of trying to hold onto things that don’t matter? That is where worry and fear come in.
