Created for Eternity
Many people live their entire lives not really understanding why they were put on earth. What a tragedy and grave state of existence. It's even possible to be successful, happy and popular but miss the point of living.
The moment we become the center of life is the moment we miss the true meaning and the reason that God created us. It's important for us to realize that God has created us for Him, not for our own benefit. God has created all of us for eternity. In fact, Ecclesiastes 3:11 tells us that God has placed eternity in our hearts.
When we begin seeing life through the lens of eternity, we will live differently. Our choices, decisions, values and priorities will line up with God's Word and His plan for our lives.
