The Bottom Line

  "The bottom line" has been spoken with reference to the final, ultimate, conclusive and comprehensive result. It is used in finance, education, politics, almost everything. People say, "Well, the bottom line is..." They mean that to which it all finally culminates.

  Life has a bottom line because it will someday end for each of us (Heb. 9:27). What is it that really matters? We all have so many things which concern us in life and we are so busy attending to first one thing then another. But all that will end. What will be the bottom line for us?

  After all is said and done, and in time all will be said and done, what matters is the eternal destiny of the soul. Everything else perishes anyway. If we will look down the road a bit we can easily see our relationship with God is what matters.
