PostPDL Chapter 6 - Life is a temporary assignment

This chapter really hit on somethings that God has been showing me lately. The point of this earthly life being temporary is something I believe alot of Christians miss. Rick Warren states:

Quote :
To make the best use of your life, you must never forget two truths: First, compared with eternity, life is extremely brief. Second, earth is only a temporary residence. You won't be here long, so don't get too attached.

So true Mr. Warren. If we can only get this, we would experience life much differently. Another point that really caught my eye was when he used the analogy of ambassadors in foreign countries and how you must stay loyal to your native land and not compromise your role as an ambassador.

He also points out how things on this earth are not designed to always make us happy. I thought this was very interesting. He states:

Quote :
A fish would never be happy living on land, because it was made for water

Nice analogy Mr Warren.


My Presumptions:

My presumption of this chapter is wrapped up by this quote from C.S. Lewis:

Quote :
All that is not eternal is eternally useless
