Let Us Give Not Temporary But Eternal Beauty

“For All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls, but the word of the Lord remains forever. And this word is the good news that was preached to you.”

-1 Peter 1:24-25

This is the not first time for us to read such verse as it was also written in Matthew 24:35 and 1 John 2:17 but with this verse that Peter wrote, he compared the desire of this world into grass and its beauty to a flower. Flower is known to be a natural beauty of this world. Jesus compared flowers that even all prosperity of Solomon has, still can’t be as beautiful as them. But still the beauty will pass away so nothing in this world we can hold onto but only the Word of God that was preached to us.

From the verse also encourage us as a Christian to share the word to other people as this is the best thing we can give to them. Yes we can buy them luxury from this world, expensive clothes, hi-tech gadgets but the fact it will all pass away. So if we love people like family, friends etc, instead of giving them things that are temporary in this world, let us give them things that they will enjoy eternally.
