This Life is Preparing for Eternity

Every Monday morning I meet with a number of our leaders for breakfast. Charlie, our most seasoned guy, made a great comment today as we were talking. He said “This life is preparing for eternity.”

What does that mean? Well, I don’t think it means that this life here and now doesn’t matter. Rather, it means that this life is getting us ready for the next. We have the opportunity now to cultivate passions for God and love for people that will be useful in the age to come. What an exciting thought! Who I am becoming today will be more completely realized in 10,000 years. That means I better make the most of today.

May you do things today that you’ll be glad about forever.
