"For the present is the point at which time touches eternity."
— C.S. Lewis
Wow. Soak that in for a second. Makes sense. Doesn’t it?
But do we live like that? I don’t think we always realize that our present moment has eternal impact. What we do now–the choices we make, the words we speak (or choose not to), the way we spend our money, the interaction we have with our friends–has the potential to point others towards an eternity with Him or repel them from it. It sounds like a lot of pressure. And it would be, if it were up to us. Thankfully, we have the Holy Spirit to guide and nudge us along the way. May He make us more conscious of eternity in the present moment. And may our hearts be softly open and courageously bold enough to act on His promptings.
