This morning I was listening to Steven Curtis Chapman being interviewed about losing his little daughter. He spoke about a letter someone had written him reminding him of this: "She is a bigger part of your future than she ever was of your past." What an amazing comfort for those who are in Christ Jesus!
Am I future-focused enough to be in the world but not of it? Am I viewing each person in my life as a soul rather than someone who hurts me or needs me too much or is a bother to me? If eternity is forever, than what are eighty, or so, years?
Lord, help me to be driven by eternity.
