Eternal Perspective

A little boy was once grieving over his recently departed dog, Sparky. The young fellow asked his grandfather if Sparky was in heaven. Grandpa replied, “I’m sure of it! I’m certain that Sparky is enjoying doggie heaven right now. He’s probably chasing squirrels all the time!”

After thinking about that for a moment, the grandson replied, “So, Grandpa, are you saying that doggie heaven is the same thing as squirrel hell?”

There may be some room for discussion about what the afterlife will be like, but few people doubt its existence. We are engineered to be aware of eternity. Ecclesiastes 3:11 says that God has “set eternity in the hearts of men.”

Not only that, the Bible urges us to think about eternity—“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ…” (2 Corinthians 5:10).

Finally, we have been offered a way to spend eternity with God. “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6).
