A thought jumped up at me this week: I’m already living an eternal life.
What does that mean? Do I have to try to pack as much as possible into each day? Do I need to hurry through tasks and then worry that I did something wrong?
I think not. Jesus lived what is famously called a “three-mile-an-hour” life because he walked everywhere. Were he in the 21st century, would he be screaming around in a car at 70 miles-per-hour while texting to explain why he’s late?
Today we switch from Daylight Savings Time in the United States. We literally get another hour in the day. And it feels good.
We have more time than we believe. We are living an eternal life with a God of grace at the wheel. Let’s slow down.
