I like buying things that will last. My parents taught my brothers and me that you "get what you pay for." So when I buy stuff (like a washing machine, a television, or even clothes), I want to choose things that will hold up versus those that won't survive over the long haul (consequently I'm sending clothes to Good Will that are in great condition but are from the early 2000's and look grossly out of style). Nonetheless, even those quality goods that I purchase will eventually fall apart. My investment will not last forever. There is no business that survives forever. Sure, a select few have been around for quite a while, but they will eventually die, too. That's why forever is a word that I don't think many of us have much of a grasp on. Just based on the sheer enormity of its nature, forever is beyond my understanding. At the same time, I am grateful that it is the word used to describe God's name in Psalm 135. Things will come and go, but the name of the Lord will last forever. Kingdoms will rise and fall, but the Lord's renown will be throughout all of the ages… forever. The Lord's name is the only name that will last forever. Isn't it amazing to think that His name still exists? Jesus Christ is the topic of more debate today than perhaps any other subject. We need to be asking ourselves why that is. I think it's because He is living God – and because of that, I choose to worship Him.
