Hebrews 11:13-16

 

 

Parents are sometimes heard telling their young adult children, “You need to stop dreaming about the future and get a job today!” Some adults can’t stop thinking that their true destination in life is just around the corner. Instead of sowing seeds today, they dream only of a harvest (Proverbs 12:11).


Just the opposite is true of some Christians. Instead of keeping our eyes focused on our eternal calling, we become enamored with “today”—the things of this world that are only temporal (1 John 2:17). The writer to the Hebrews singled out Abraham and Moses as examples of those who lived their lives by faith in the future. Abraham might have been travelling to Canaan, but he knew he was destined for an eternal city. And Moses didn’t mind giving up the riches of Egypt because “he looked to the reward” God had planned for him in eternity (Hebrews 11:26).


Both the present and the future are important, but only one will last forever. In fact, our present life is to be lived with our eternal life in mind (1 Corinthians 3:11-15). Whatever your plans are for today, fulfill them for eternal reasons.


Too often we concentrate only on the things we can see now; but our focus should be on that place we can only envision, but will enjoy for all eternity.

In 1991 a huge deposit of natural diamonds was found at a location in a remote corner of Canada's Northwest Territory, about 120 miles south of the Arctic Circle. By 1998, the EKATI mine was operational and it was estimated that just one pit would yield an astonishing number of diamonds, seven or eight million carats. In fact, from 1998 through 2009, 40 million carats were produced from the mine's six open pits.
