This world is not my home, I'm just passing through,
My treasures are laid up, Somewhere beyond the blue,
The angels beckon me from Heavens golden shores,
And I can't feel at home, in this world, anymore.
It really struck me when I thought about it, that it is too easy to feel at home here in this world. Yes, there are many times when I don't feel at home here, but I know I spend far too much time worrying about my "treasures" here on this earth instead of working towards building God's kingdom. If I really took seriously, the fact that I am just traveling through this world, and will spend eternity in Heaven, I should put so much less priority on all those things that consume so much of my time and thoughts. When I think about it in that way, it really helps me to keep my focus on the important things here on this world and not get so caught up in the little day to day things that really don't matter in the long run. So - don't make yourself at home here. In this case, it's better to be uncomfortable!
