“All Will Be Thrown Down”
We know that things change, O God, but knowing it and accepting it are two different things.
Help us to accept it.
Help us not to put too much trust in things that appear permanent but in fact are not.
Help us rather to put our trust in you whose faithfulness endures through all generations and whose purpose will be fulfilled for all eternity.
“As Jesus came out of the temple and was going away, his disciples came to point out to him the buildings of the temple. Then he asked them, ‘You see all these, do you not? Truly I tell you, not one stone will be left here upon another; all will be thrown down.’” (Matthew 24:1-2)
