"You should know this, that in the last days there will be very difficult times. For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!
They are the kind who work their way into people’s homes and win the confidence of[a] vulnerable women who are burdened with the guilt of sin and controlled by various desires. (Such women are forever following new teachings, but they are never able to understand the truth.) These teachers oppose the truth."
2 Timothy 3:1-8
Today in the midst of doing meaningless maintenance on my house. God spoke to my heart... what if He were to come back right now..... what if in the next few days the end of the world was coming... would my house maintenance really matter. No - His answer is No it wouldn't matter... and it is not what he wants me to be busy about. I guess Lydia and the Prov 31 woman did alot of working on meaningless stuff and the Bible tributes them as "good women" and so stuff does need to be done but i know my thinking still needs to line up with HIS thinking.... with His perspective i can do as i am suppose to.
Even tonight as i am listening to the bible doing my dishes these words above were so close to home.
Are these truly the last days? I know that we don't know that but boy do those words seem like today.
I love Him and His word, it is like guide putting me on the right path when i falter. Like medicine to my soul.
