Ecclesiastes 3:11-13

We all crave comfort, don't we? We may have a GPS so we don't get lost or AAA so we don't get stranded. We have drive-thru's for coffee, dining, dry cleaning and banking. We vacation at time shares or make appointments at the salon.

What if we turned on the GPS and brought up an inventory of our favorite places . . . or our recent places? What would it say about you? What would it say about me?

A wise person taught me that there are two things that are eternal: people and the Word of God. It's okay to spend our days comfortably, but let's be careful to also spend our days in light of eternity.

Ecclesiastes 3:11-13 says, "[God] has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live. That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil-this is the gift of God."
