Day 25: Sticks and Stones - Using Eternal Building Materials

Planting For The Future - Based on One Month to Live by Kerry and Chris Shook

Life Lesson (from journal): "All of us desire to leave a legacy, to know that we mattered. And our legacy is determined by how we spend our days."
Kerry and Chris Shook opens Day 25 by asking: As we've seen, the question becomes, will our influence last beyond our lifetime? Everyday we get to choose the materials--either temporary or eternal--we'll build our lives with.

A belief is something you hold on to, but a conviction is something that holds you.

Some Readings to Consider: Psalm 33:10-11; Psalm 37:18; Psalm 117; Proverbs 10:25; Isaiah 40:6-8

God chips away everything in your character that doesn't look like Jesus Christ--all the character faults and flaws--because His plan is to perfect you in the image of His Son.

"For it is in giving that we receive; It is in pardoning that we are pardoned; And it is in dying to ourselves that we are born to eternal life." -St. Augustine
