“All people are like grass,
and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;
the grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of the Lord endures forever.”

1 Peter 1:24-25 NIV

Enduring

An enduring power of attorney is a legal document that allows you to appoint someone (called an “attorney”) to manage your financial and property matters on your behalf. Here are the key points about enduring powers of attorney. Enduring or Continuing Power of Attorney, unlike a general power of attorney, remains effective even if a person becomes mentally incapable of managing their affairs. It allows the attorney to continue acting on their behalf. A person must be mentally capable when signing any power of attorney.

It isn’t true that nothing lasts forever. We recognize that so much in this world is transient and changing. We are constantly sweeping up petals from the flowerpots that fall as others take their place. Far too soon autumn will be here, and it will be very obvious that things are in a constant state of change. But the Bible says that not everything changes. The apostle says this in 1 Peter 1:24-25: “‘All people are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord endures forever.’” Even the most powerful and renowned human being passes away and his or her glory fades. Popular books, movies, entertainers, politicians soon fall out of favour and are forgotten. But God’s word, the Bible, continues to be the world’s best-seller, and never ceases to change lives. Its truth remains timeless, its history continues to be confirmed. Ancient portions of God’s word prove how God is able to preserve His unchanging word. You can trust what it says, and you can trust the One who wrote it and to whom it points. God’s word endures.

These have been words from the heart.
