Eternity in You

If God cares about the grass that is here today and gone tomorrow, surely He cares about you who He made for Eternity.

I hate that I don’t have the mindset of Eternity all the time. I hate that I think about things day to day, week by week, and month by month. And I pretty much just put Eternity in the background of it all. Strange, huh?

God created us for fellowship. He didn’t create us with the intent of us living and dying and the end. No. He created us for Eternity, but He knew the outcome of our decisions.

It’s crazy, God created us to be in fellowship with Him, and some of us don’t believe in Him. Some of us don’t know Him. And some of us think we know Him, but don’t really.

What I can’t understand is why I’m so worked up about things that happen today and are forgotten tomorrow. In comparison to Eternity, what are things? When I was made for Eternity, what? When I will be with God eternally, what stuff is anymore than that? Stuff.

Matthew 6: 28-30  “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?

Ecclesiastes 6:11 Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.
