Living in the past or living in the future. Allowing my past to dictate my present, or investing in the future.
What a challenging thought for this day. So much of our lives is built around what we have known and how we and our ancestors have lived in the past, but our focus must be on the future, on eternity. Invest our lives in that which will last for eternity. There is the challenge. What lasts? What has eternal value? How do I invest my life in those things? I must scrutinize my own life, examine my choices, my schedule, my priorities, my energy and my resources. I want to make a difference for eternity, not just enjoy this life without thought of “forever.”
