2 Thessalonians 3:6-13
When we’re waiting for something important, anticipating how wonderful it’s going to make our lives it can be really difficult to concentrate on the realities of life. Especially if some of those realities are nowhere near as fun as what we’re hoping for. Whatever hopes we have for the future, we know we live in the present. As Christians we have a foot in two worlds—the reality of our daily lives and the hope that we have in through Christ that will lead us to Heaven. Both of these places make the Kingdom of God. How do we live our lives in ways that keep us grounded, but also help us live with hope and compassion? The love of Christ for all of us always wins, and we can express that love for one another right now in ways that help all of us.
