The reality of this world is that all those relationships and pursuits and things can’t last. Even the sun will fizzle out one day.

But the Son never will.

When all our relationships are gone, He is still there. When the pursuits have petered out, he persists. When the things are dust, He lives.

When there’s no one else, He will always be.

They might think they saw something, do a double take, but loo
