LIVING FOR THE LINE 
 
When we live with eternity in view, even washing dishes and repairing carburetors become an investment in God’s plan. The people who change lives are the ones who point us away from the world’s short-term perspective to God’s long -term perspective.

Life on earth is a Dot a brief window of opportunity; life in Heaven (and ultimately on the New Earth) is a LINE going out from that dot for eternity.

If we’re smart, we’ll live not for the dot, but for the line. When we view our short today in light of eternity’s long tomorrow (to use A.W. Tozer’s expression), even the little choices we make become tremendously important.

After death we will never have another chance to share Christ with one who can be saved, to give a cup of water to the thirsty, to serve our church. No wonder Scripture commands us, “Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things” (Colossians 3: 2, NIV).

“If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God” (Colossians 3: 1).

    "The people who change lives are the ones who point us away from the world’s short-term perspective to God’s long -term perspective."

    Words worthy to take in.
    Thanks for sharing H.
