Mortality and the Eternal

"For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:
But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you." I Peter 1: 24-25  --KJV

And in these fast and shaky times, there is nothing more solid and lasting to hang onto than God's Word.

Shelly, exactly so. Eternal Truth, the Anchor in this tempestuous world.

The immortal reaching out to the ephemeral...is there anything more profound and beautiful?

Jacquelineand: In that reaching out, He spanned the chasm separating us from eternal life, now ours for the grasping!

Interesting post side by side with the jewel heist!

Shark, juxtaposition accidental; yet even such gems as men find desirable are perishable, while the Word of God is not!
