Dr. Tony Evans shows us the importance of daily renewal of the inner self through prayer and the Word of God to stay spiritually young. Holding to an eternal perspective, we must measure our struggles against the backdrop of eternity rather than succumbing to the limitations of time. Adopting a heavenly mindset, prioritizing the eternal over the temporal, and not losing heart in the face of afflictions can help us to focus on the unseen, eternal aspects of life and navigate challenges with an enduring spirit.
