Read Luke 21 today.

This chapter includes some of Jesus’ teaching during His last week regarding events that would take place.
At one point the disciples noticed and remarked about the temple. It was a magnificent structure, and those who saw it were impressed by it. Unfortunately, many who saw it were more in awe of the temple itself than with the God to whom it had been dedicated. The signpost had become more important than the One to whom the sign pointed.
The same thing can happen to us, but in more diverse ways. Do I love that favorite song or hymn, or do I love the One for whom it was written? Am I in love with the church building where we worship, or the God we worship in that building. Is my affection directed toward a style of worship, or genuine worship irrespective of style? Do I love beautiful things merely because they touch my heart, or because they draw me toward the God who placed the longing for beauty in my heart?
The temple was something temporary intended to draw people to the Eternal. Yet some let their focus become too strongly attached to the temporary. What temporary things have a strong hold on your focus?
Luke 21:5-6 NIV
Some of his disciples were remarking about how the temple was adorned with beautiful stones and with gifts dedicated to God. But Jesus said, [6] “As for what you see here, the time will come when not one stone will be left on another; every one of them will be thrown down.”
