Only Three Things Last for Eternity

Who has made an eternal impact in your life? In whose life are you investing?

Jerry White, former president of the Navigators, aptly stated:

“Only three things last for eternity: God, the Word of God, and the human soul. To the extent that you are involved in these three things, you are involved in eternity.”

There are numerous ways to use our time, and investing in eternity is time well spent. The best news? When you do it with friends–or future friends–it’s tons of fun.

(Watch this 2-min excerpt from my Take the Jesus Challenge course where I share the names of some of the people who have made an eternal investment in me.)

Stop Right Now

Stop and write down the names of ten people who have shaped your life and either call them or send them a text to thank them. Let them know how thankful you are for them.

What do you do if the person has passed away? Track down their spouse or child and share it with them.

Who are you investing in? Stop and pray for them. If no one comes to mind, pray for God to prepare you to make an eternal investment in a few people this year.
