TURNING MOMENTS INTO ETERNITY

Scripture:
 
Your throne was established long ago;
     you are from all eternity. — Psalm 93:2
 
How can we, who live in a finite world where everything
is temporary, understand the concept of infinity?
Our lives are only a wave in the vast and endless sea of
eternity. Sure, we can make a lot of noise with our
voices and pound the pavement with our feet, but very
quickly, we will return to the quiet stillness of the sea
from which we came. What’s a wave in comparison to
the great ocean? That’s our lives in contrast to eternity.
 
I used to have a teacher that would often preface our
Bible study by reminding us that we were “turning
moments into eternity.” When we do good deeds and
study God’s Word, we create moments that last forever.
Most of what we do in our brief lives is gone and
meaningless once we leave the world. But our good
deeds last forever. They live on for eternity.
Considering that truth, how will we spend our time
today? Will the hours be lost once they pass, or can
we make them last forever? What can we do today that
will turn our moments into eternity?
 
With prayers for shalom, peace,
Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein
