I think this is pretty darn true. If I would stop and consider how my actions are going to impact the future, I might make some different decisions. Too often, I think we as humans only consider the here and now, and we forget to consider how sins of today might change our tomorrows. How they might affect our eternity.
I do believe that God has plans for us on a day to day basis. I do think He affects the minutae of our days. But more so, I know that His plans are for the end of our lives. He wants us in the here and now, but He really wants us to plan for the end– when we have the chance, and the choice, to be with Him. Our life on earth is so tiny in comparison to the option of spending eternity with Jesus.
How is what we are doing today affecting that future?
