What Happens When You Forget Eternity

“When you forget eternity, you tend to lose sight of what’s important. When you lose sight of what’s truly important, you live for what is temporary, and your heart seeks satisfaction where it cannot be found… Let the values of eternity be the values that shape your living today, and keep telling yourself that the difficulties of today will someday completely pass away.” —Paul Tripp

So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

I saw that Paul Tripp quote and the 2 Corinthians quote on Sammy A’s Facebook page yesterday.

  1. My life verse is similar. “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain” (Phil. 1:21, ESV). It serves as a daily reminder that death is gain because I get to be with Christ in eternity. But if God keeps me another day longer, I’m here to serve Him.
