John 6:27 Don't work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. On him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.
It talked about how when we reflect on things to be grateful for it is often monetary or tangible things. Here God is saying be grateful for the things that last through eternity.
A quote form the author;'Men and women throughout history have sought to fill their aching hearts with something lasting and truly satisfying and some have found it in the favor of God in Christ, but many have not found it at all. One of the saddest scenes in all humanity is the person who has tried to fill his internal void with all sorts of false pleasures. These things can give pleasure, but they cannot satisfy, and in the end they are gone. none of them lasts forever.
The food that Jesus provides lasts forever. Though scorned by many, it is of infinate worth. It is unimpressive to the material mind, but in the end it will be seen by all for what it is and we will all say, "That's what my heart really desired all along." Eternal gifts promote eternal gratitude.
Never mistake failure as final
They call it a diet, but it's really my life.
Deciding what you want your life to be like is not hard. Deciding what you are willing to do and give up to get it, is the hard part.
I will do what I need to do in order to do what I want to do.
What you do and say is a reflection of who you are, so decide who you want to be and do it.
