Psalms 93:2 -- On Eternity

"Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting."
Psalms 93:2

This is talking about the eternal nature of God, which I don't think that we can really wrap out heads around all the way.  That's why it says "established of old," because that's the only way we can think of it.  It's really hard to imagine eternity.

The cool part though is that we're going to have all the time (non-time?) in the world (well, heaven?) to learn it, because we're eternal too, and because of Christ's atonement, we will all be resurrected and live forever.  I think we might have to learn some new words to describe the whole thing. :)

The fact that God is everlasting is huge.  Almost everything we do on this earth is limited and temporary... God teaches us a whole other way to look at things.  We learn through him that some things last.  Some things aren't temporary, and *those* are the things that truly matter, and that we should put higher on our priority lists.  If we start thinking ahead in an eternal sense, everything else shifts in our perspective.  We realize how important God is, and the gospel, and knowledge, and other people.  Computers and LEGOs are still fun and cool, but they aren't as important as those eternal things.

Today, let's work on focusing on the eternal.  Let's make sure that we are making God our top priority, and learning from him what things matter and what things do not.
