Scripture of the Day - May 11, 2012

Genesis 29:20 And Jacob served seven years for Rachel; and they seemed unto him but a few days, for the love he had to her.

Jacob's love for Rachel was so strong, so full, that working for seven years to win her hand in marriage seem but a few days. To Jacob it was well worth it. he would have worked as long as Laban demanded. Jacob wasn't going to argue or fuss because his love for Rachel kept his eyes on the prize that he would win one day.
How long do we have to toil here on this earth before we join in the marriage supper of the Lamb? How long before we win our prize of being with our Lord in heaven? We don't know, but our love for Jesus should be so strong that our time here seems like a vapor. Our love for Jesus should be so full that we will do whatever is demanded of us to be with Him.
Let's not fuss, and let's not get sidetracked with the cares of this world, be them pleasurable or painful. We must keep our eyes focused and let our love for our precious Savior grow stronger every day.
