Revelation 18:14–“They will say, ‘The fruit you longed for is gone from you. All your luxury and splendor have vanished never to be recovered.'”
As Babylon is destroyed, they are reminded that all the luxury and splendor that had once been part of Babylon are gone. We must be careful not to judge things by their appearances. Just because something or someone looks successful on the outside doesn’t mean that they will last or that they are built on a solid foundation. Are we building our lives on the correct foundation? Do we base our lives on following Jesus Christ, or are we solely focused on the things and stuff of this world?
Father, I praise You for all that You have done. You are the foundation I will build my life on, not the things of this world. Father, forgive me when I seek after the stuff of this world. I know that You are the only thing that will last and I will seek after You.
