Grasping for Shadows

  • Regular price $4.00 USD

Too often Christians passionately pursue worldly objects and affections that don’t hold eternal value. Without considering how they may serve Christ, these Believers focus their time, skills, and energy on a variety of pursuits including education, sports, careers, fame, and money. They may not realize it, but they should wake up to the fact that they are grasping for shadows—that their self-centered pursuit of these fleeting objects is eternally meaningless.

“Only one life, ’twill soon be past, only what’s done for Christ will last.”

–David Livingstone

Author info: For over fifty-eight years, William MacDonald addressed the key issues of Christianity in clear and simple terms. Leaving a promising business career for the Lord Jesus, he traveled worldwide, proclaiming the unsearchable riches of Christ. His more than eighty works are characterized by an economy of words that only comes by a major time investment in the Word. Although William MacDonald went to be with the Lord in 2008, his writing ministry continues to instruct and teach thousands of people today.
