Once I was sitting at a stop light and I thought about the persihable human beings in all the cars around me. I tried to imagine what the landscape would look like if all the persihable human bodies would dissapear really quickly, as though time just sped ahead 100 years but humanity didn't. Even the ones in the baby seats would be gone. There would be empty cars sittting there and garbage would be blowing around in the streets... almost like a scene from a science fiction movie. People and our little worlds of activities all seem so important to us, but they are so vaporous! Then the horn blew behind me and I got on my way.
What will be here 100 years from now? The details are not clear, but one thing is for sure. God isn't going to change! He is good and just, holy and gracious, loving and kind. He is the eternal being and His mercy is everlasting. With Him is where eternity is. Thinking and learning about Him is investing thought and time in that which will last. Clinging to His mercy and truth is holding onto a mighty rope that leads through the fog... and over into "forever."
In all likelihood, our descendants will be here 100 years from now. It is good to know that God's mercy will still be available. Truth will not change any more than God will.
5 For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting, and His truth endures to all generations.
