Today many people make the common mistake of thinking of the here and now. Our minds get wrapped up in daily life. Our daily thoughts are comprised of a son's soccer game, a doctor's appointment or a planned golf outing. Occasionally we think about our future and we plan for our retirement or owning our own home.
However, our primary plan should be planning for our eternal future. Before being crucified Jesus told His disciples that He was going to prepare a place for them in His Father's kingdom. When we come to Christ, He gives us a part of that future in His kingdom. To have a place in God's kingdom should bring joy and hope even in sadness and despair. When we come to Jesus we can say, "…You have given me the inheritance of those who fear Your name." (Psalm 61:5b).
