Live with Eternity In View

I was deeply encouraged by these words from this mornings devotion in Paul Tripp's New Morning Mercies:
"You and I are hardwired for eternity. Ecclesiastes 3:11 says that God has placed eternity in every person's heart. That means that everyone hungers for paradise. No one is satisfied with things the way they are. So either you try your hardest to turn your life right here, right now into the paradise it will never be and therefore become driven and disappointed, or you live in this broken world with the rest and peace that comes from knowing that a guaranteed place in paradise is in your future." 
May we all live as agents of eternal hope in the present reality of a broken world where God is working his plan to bring about redemption.
