“Jesus answered, My kingdom does not belong to this
world.” (John 18:36).
How often do we put all our time and energy into building a kingdom here on earth, forgetting that life here is short? The real kingdom is the next life. Yet, how much time and energy do we invest in working for that eternal kingdom?
