…while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal. (II Corinthians 4:18 NKJV)

A thought:
The physical world really is temporary. Change defines it: we age, we die, relationships come and go, civilizations rise and fall.

What doesn’t change?

Goodness, love, value, truth, meaning. None of these are visible; yet even if the world didn’t exist, love would still be true. “The things which are not seen are eternal”.  They are not visible, yet remain undeniably real; and this is God’s country. The physical world is only a consequence of His love and creativity, but the Source is – has to be, in fact – outside of it.
