In My Father’s house are many mansions…I go to prepare a place for you. John 14:2
There was once a little boy who was riding alone on a train, and the scenery was not too interesting. A woman sitting beside him asked, “Are you tired of the long ride?”
The boy smiled and said, “I’m a little tired, but I don’t mind it much, you see my father is going to meet me when I get there.”
Sometimes we get tired of the burdens of life, but we know that Jesus Christ will meet us at the end of our life’s journey—and that makes all the difference. Paul wrote, “Therefore we do not lose heart…For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal” (2 Cor. 4:16, 18). Knowing we will be with Christ forever far outweighs our burdens today! Keep your eyes on eternity.
