Since our conversation I have been thinking a lot about that statement. I have been asking myself how many things do MY hands touch that actually have eternal value. I think it is so easy to get busy doing things that may be okay to do, but which have no actual eternal significance. I rejoice that my father in law came to learn this valuable truth and has been able to apply it to his life even if it was not until he retired.
I have been wondering what would happen if Christians could learn this truth at age 55, or 45, or 25 instead of at age 65. Imagine learning this truth at age 15! Imagine having an entire life ahead to touch eternal things. Wow, what a life that would be!
The only way to have that kind of life, is to start living it today!
