27 Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him.”

John 6:27 (NKJV)

This verse is a reminder that there are more important things than perishable food and work here on earth. It’s eternal life that is much more important and that is the perspective that being a Christian brings us. That this life is not the end, and that there is more to come! But that’s not to say that we can’t have an abundant life here on earth, too!

From the Nelson Study Bible:

Do not labor for the food: The impression that one must work for eternal life is quickly corrected when Jesus adds which the Son of Man will give you. The Son provides life as a gift (4:10). Set His Seal on Him means that the Father has authorized and authenticated the Son as the Giver of life.
