Life Is Short, Eternity Is Long

As I think about the year that is ending today, this phrase came to my mind: life is short, eternity is long.

In 2012, several acquaintances passed away due to cancer, a few more with cancer are facing death at this moment.

Time goes by so fast, every minute, every hour, every day, every year, every life time.

Life comes at you fast. It passes by fast.

None of us know how long we have on this earth.  It can be seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, or years.  Sooner or later, before you know it, it’s gone.

But there is life after death. We have eternal life in Jesus Christ.

The Bible says:

“Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” (Colossians 3:2)

“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. (2 Corinthians 4:18)

The earthly and worldly things are temporary, but God’s kingdom is eternal. The things that have eternal value are to be sought over those things that have only temporary, earthly value.

“Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and he will give you everything you need.” (Luke 12:31)

“I do not know what the future holds; but I do know who holds the future.”

Wish everyone a happy and healthy New Year, filled with love, joy, peace and God’s blessings!
