and the wisdom … of a man.

If you plant for days—plant flowers.

If you plant for years—plant trees.

If you plant for eternity—plant people. (Author Unknown)

These words of wisdom express an eternal perspective, reminiscent of those of Warren W. Wiersbe:

“There’s only three things you can do with your life. You can waste it, you can spend it, or you can invest it.”

  1. You can waste it on things that that don't matter.
  2. You can spend it on things of value.
  3. You can invest it in the lives of people, who will live forever (eternal punishment or eternal life).
Human beings will last for eternity and we should strive to invest in the lives of others, storing up our treasure in heaven.

What are you doing today to invest your life in the lives of others?
