[QTVOTD] Keep eternity in mind…

Ben’s QTVOTD – “The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning, but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth and sensual joy.” Ecclesiastes 7:4 ->me: I need to keep eternity in mind – not obsess or worry (God tells us not to worry) but to weigh my impulses and desires in light of my mortality before indulging in them.  At my age I feel like I have wasted a good portion of my possible impact for God’s Kingdom; but that should only encourage me to push hard now.  I know many “fools” -> those who expend a lot of energy to give themselves what they want – much through partying.  No sooner are they back from one bender before they are talking about prep for the next one.  I feel there is still so much I can do.  I have a lot of fun investing in people.  Our Life Group nights feel like a party -> we eat, we share, we laugh, and we are there for each other while we learn more about what God says about our relationships.  This is the focus – invest in the eternal aspects of those in my sphere of influence.  It really isn’t about what I want or being accepted by man – it’s about what God wants and showing everyone I can that God accepts them how they are IN CHRIST.
