Permanent

This brings us to prayer; for ourselves and our families.
It is natural; it does not go against the natural flow of breathing to concentrate on temporary things – things of this earth that will not, do not last.

Things that are necessary to live here but even so are temporary.
And so we are instructed with this verse to
FIX.
We are instructed to Fix our eyes, our focus, attention, affection, direction, on The Eternal.

This does not naturally occur – it takes an earnest, dedicated decision and FEW make that decision.

So if you have fixed your eyes on The Eternal, it is imperative and it is love to pray for your family and friends that are still focused on the temporary to turn from the temporal to GOD permanently.
