It’s a bit of a depressing thought, but have you ever had that moment where you think, ‘one day I’m going to [insert dream here],’ only to realise that you’ve had that same thought every year since you can remember, and that your available time is only getting shorter and shorter?
So I’ve never visited the pyramids in Egypt. I’ve wanted to since I was about 10 years old, and always thought as a kid that I’d do it when I grew up. As a student I figured I’d do it once I got a job and could afford it. Once I got a job I figured I’d do it on my next holiday. Then I got married, and got caught up in visiting family and doing husband-wife stuff, and now I’ve got a kid, who sort of restricts the ability to travel a long way.
But I still want to go, and every so often catch myself thinking, ‘I’ll do that one day.’
So I wonder…what do you have that you’ve said you’ll always do but haven’t yet? What’s your excuse?
- Nothing matters except for Jesus; the very best of this earth won’t even be comparable with the very worst of a perfect eternity with him.
- Christians will have the rest of eternity to do all that stuff we don’t manage to get round to in this life; we won’t spend eternity playing harps on clouds but living on the new, redeemed earth.
