How frequently do you view life in the light of eternity? This world will pass away. However, our actions, words, and behaviors will not. Your imprint leaves a legacy. Your actions can influence generations beyond you.
Eternity is in the Master’s hands and eternity rests in our human hearts.
We must consider our marriages and relationships in the light of eternity. We must consider our treatment of others in the light of eternity. We must consider our careers, our finances, our health-all in the light of eternity. But make no mistake about it, marriage does not lead to eternal life. Your loved ones are not your Savior. Your job, your bank account, and your good health does not cement your place in heaven.
If eternity is planted in our hearts (and it is), then our cares and concerns must be filtered through the lens of eternity.
Consider the woman with the issue of blood, her actions are etched into the Bible. Consider Rahab and her willingness to hide the spies, her bravery is cemented into eternity. Consider the woman who used expensive perfume and tears to wash Jesus’s feet, forever remembered.
Simply put: How you do, what you do, matters.
Peace and Blessings
