“God…has planted eternity in the human heart.”      Ecc 3:11 NLT

Why do thousands of children die of starvation each day, while every night the world’s wealthiest nations throw away enough food to feed them? In 3,500 years of recorded civilization, only 268 years have passed without war raging some place on the globe. Yet during that same period 8,000 peace treaties have been signed. Why is the dash between the dates on a tombstone so small? Something tells us this isn’t right, good, or fair. This isn’t home. Who put these thoughts in our heads? The Bible says, “God…has planted eternity in the human heart.” As a redeemed child of God your life on earth is just the beginning. It’s the first letter, of the first sentence, of the first chapter, of the great story God is writing. We’re like homing pigeons; we have an innate home detector. We’re heaven bound and heaven hungry. That doesn’t mean you can be so heavenly minded that you’re no earthly use. If you want to hear the “well done…good and faithful servant” (Mt 25:21), you’ve got to be a good and faithful servant of God each day on earth. But your mandate is: “Seek first the kingdom of God” (Mt 6:33 NKJV). In His plan, it’s all about the King and His kingdom. He wrote the script: “And this is [God’s] plan: At the right time he will bring everything together under the authority of Christ—everything in heaven and on earth” (Eph 1:10 NLT). The Bible ends with these words: “He who testifies to these things says, ‘Yes, I am coming soon.’ Amen. Come, Lord Jesus” (Rev 22:20 NIV). How do you get to heaven? By putting your trust in Jesus Christ.
