God Set Eternity in Your Heart
What profit has the worker from that in which he labors? I have seen the God-given task with which the sons of men are to be occupied. He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.
─ Ecclesiastes 3:9-11 NKJV
Our verse above, from the book of Ecclesiastes, causes us to ponder what it means to us that God has set eternity in our hearts. We are eternal beings. This world is not our home, so we can never be completely satisfied with earthly pleasures and pursuits. Perhaps that’s why so many of us often look to be a part of something much bigger than ourselves.
Catherine Morgan, in her book, Thirty Thousand Days: The Journey Home to God said, “Cultivate wonder in your children, make your home a chapel of praise. Give thanks, always, with a glad heart. Look for God’s fingerprints. Treasure God’s Word. Treasure each other. Live for eternity.”
God created us with an unrelenting desire for something more than can ever be found in this world. We have a spiritual thirst for so much more. We have eternal worth, and nothing but the everlasting God can justly satisfy us.
