Verbatim references:

Et sic de similibus references:

Labor not for the things that will perish, but instead labor for the things that will endure forever.
Revelation 14
12 This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey God's commandments and remain faithful to Jesus.
13 Then I heard a voice from heaven say, "Write: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on." "Yes," says the Spirit, "they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them."

All the things on earth are but for a brief moment; all the things of the Kingdom of Heaven are forever.
The things of earth are like sand castles on an ocean beach.
No matter how beautiful they are built, the waves of time will wash away all traces of their existence.
Our time on earth is but for a brief moment and all our fleshly acts will pass away.
James 4
13 Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:
14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
15 For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.

Let us set our hearts on walking with the Heavenly Father and laboring in His Heavenly Kingdom all our brief lives long.
Matthew 6
18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

We are standing at the edge of eternity.
Decide this day where you will spend eternity.
John 5
28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

By walking with the Heavenly Father and doing His will we will assure ourselves of a place in His Everlasting Kingdom.
John 11
24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
