Who Can Fathom Eternity?

Grace for the Moment (leather-bound edition) by Max Lucado 9781400322824

God has planted eternity in the hearts of men. — Ecclesiastes 3:10

It doesn’t take a wise person to know that people long for more than earth. When we see pain, we yearn. When we see hunger, we question why. Senseless deaths. Endless tears, needless loss…

We have our moments. The newborn on our breast, the bride on our arm, the sunshine on our back. But even those moments are simply slivers of light breaking through heaven’s window.

God flirts with us. He tantalizes us. He romances us. Those moments are appetizers for the dish that is to come.

No one has ever imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him. — 1 Corinthians 2:9

What a breathtaking verse! Do you see what it says? Heaven is beyond our imagination… At our most creative moment, at our deepest thought, at our highest level, we still cannot fathom eternity.
