Only God lives eternally. Because God is life itself. The only way we can also live eternally is to join together in God. To be and remain in communion with God that lives forever.
If God is the greatest of all, why would we honor anything other than God? Why would we try to make anything else great when everything else is less than God? Can we begin to see how only God deserves praise and honor?
We may say we only honor God but do our actions reflect this? Do we act properly when we are focused on God? And how much time do we spend focusing on God throughout our day? Let us consider where we are prioritizing our minds and time on. Are we actually honoring God?
