if we really believed

If we really believed that eternity waited for us on the other side of this brief life...

We would fear less and risk more
We would live our lives more like pilgrims and less like packrats
We would be more concerned with being a friend than being without friends
We would be more comfortable with weakness and less trusting of control
We would pray more and process less
We would be more concerned with souls and less impatient with personalities
We would expend more energy worshiping and less worrying
The world would see God more, and we would see ourselves less

*from a devotional from Alicia Britt Chole
