Nothing on Earth that I Desire

I have run across all the following scriptures in the past two days.  I wonder if God is trying to tell me something.  We must invest our lives in those things that really matter.  As the previous post reminded us, Don’t Waste Your Life!

You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will receive me to glory.  Whom have I in heaven but you?  And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you.  My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.  (Psalm 73:24-26)

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.  For all that is in the world – the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions – is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever. (1 John 2:15-17)

Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you.  .  .  .   The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing.  (John 6:26-27, 63)
