Our memory, as far as it can stretch, is just a drop in the ocean. Our future here in this world, as much, as hard, as clever or with as much wisdom as we can plan is only a speck in the sky! You are called to a wonderful, heavenly and eternal city, whose architect and builder is God.
With this wonderful assurance we have, let’s let go of the business of today or the worries of tomorrow. Our moments in this world is so finite; let’s live to our fullest, let’s take time to smile at a stranger, lend a listening ear, appreciate our family, help out a colleague, forgive and forget a wrong, or just hear His still small voice.
Looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God.
They only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth. People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own. 15 If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. Instead, they were longing for a better country—a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.
