- Luke 17:26-27 (NKJV) And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: 27 They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.
Something does not have to be true for you to act on it.
For example, the general consensus for today is that all that matters is what is going on today. People are going to be feverishly conducting business, taking care of their daily chores, trying to make it as quickly from point A to point B as possible, rushing through lunch, laughing with friends, fretting over something someone said…well, you get the picture—“as it was in the days of Noah”.
However, you know that is not the full story. You know there is an eternity always waiting but a breath away. Yet the temptation is to live like the philosophy of this world is really true. The temptation is to feel the pressure of all that must be done today so much that we take no time for the eternal things.
Don’t do that! Truly this is a case of “the truth shall set you free” being of paramount importance.
The ONE THING for today: Answer this question, “How many other things are not really true that you are living your life as if they were?”
