Traveling on the Road to Eternity

“For I know that You will bring me to death, and  to the house appointed for all living.” Job 30:23

If you are in Christ, you will have trials to bear…

If a man on a journey has terrible accommodations in which to stay where he lodges only for a night–he will not get very upset about the matter; because he wont be staying there. It is not his home.

You are on the road to eternity!

Do not let it distress you when you meet with some hardships in the “‘inn of this world.”

Do not fret, because your life is not as easy as another person’s life. One man travels with an expensive polished cane in his hand; his fellow traveler, perhaps, has but a common staff or stick: either of them will serve them well. It doesn’t matter which of them is yours; both will be laid aside when you come to your journey’s end.

~ Thomas Boston, “Death” (adapted)
