WE ACT BECAUSE OF A SENSE OF ETERNITY

We Act Because of a Sense of Eternity
We all talk down the guy who goes off on drugs and decides to leap off the high building but actually we all feel we want to do something like that. From the moment we buy our first motorbike to the moment we buy that high-powered car, we're always trying to give vent to that feeling that we have, that we're made for eternity in some way. Actually, that's why we men are often so disappointed. We slog and slog and slog and you climb the ladder and then you get there and it isn't like what you've been yearning for. Because actually, that was just a poor shadow of the eternity that God has put into our minds.
