I am reminded of a church I served where we renovated a meeting space. When taking out the walls that made a closet we found many trophies where teams from the church had won softball and basketball seasons. Most of the trophies had pieces that were broken off, tarnished or represented people that did not attend the church anymore. They were a reminder of what was.
We are reminded in Daniel 12:3 that treasures, fame and accolades we receive while on this earth are fleeting.
"Those who are wise will shine as bright as the sky, and those who lead many to righteousness will shine like the stars forever."
Remember to invest in people. Those who come to know a personal, saving relationship with Jesus Christ will shine forever.
