2 Corinthians 4:18

While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

KJV

I have noticed that the nine months spent in the womb by babies are not counted as part of life. Maybe, because it is just the formative stage or because the days spent in the womb are considered nothing when compared with the many years the person has to spend outside the womb. Yet it is those things that happened at this time considered trivial, that will determine whether the baby will live to be a day old or not.

Life on earth is the trivial, formative stage that determines what happens in the never ending, everlasting eternity. Unlike the baby in the womb who has no choices, we have the power to choose. Everyone is responsible for his choices.

Therefore, these are my conclusions:

1. Christians should live happily on earth despite certain difficulties, looking forward to the joy eternity brings.

2. Man should be able to endure hardship, hatred, trials, persecutions, and the likes for 70 years in order to enjoy unending abundance in eternity.

3. Nothing on earth; whether fun, wealth, power or fame should be a hindrance to the unending joy, wealth, power and greatness that eternal life brings.

Go into today knowing that:

- You will live forever.

-Death is not the end, it is only a transition to eternity

- “Measured against eternity, our time on earth is just a blink of an eye, but the consequences of it will last forever". Rick Warren.

- “While life on earth offers many choices, eternity offers only two: heaven or hell". Rick Warren

Prayer: Father, open my heart to see the glory eternity holds and live my life according to your will. Amen
