The Puritans on Eternity

The past few weeks, I have been sharing some thoughts from different Puritans on a variety of topics. Most of these quotes have come from A Puritan Golden Treasury. I have shared their thoughts on Unity, Idleness, Excess, Parenting, and the Church. Today, I want to share just three quotes on Eternity. Thinking of forever is very difficult for us temporal humans. But having the right perspective of eternity will greatly help the Christian live the life that Jesus calls us to live. I hope these thoughts will help focus you today as you think, not just for the here and now, but forever.
"Eternity to the godly is a day that has no sunset; eternity to the wicked is a night that has no sunrise." (Thomas Watson)
"A man's greatest care should be for that place where he lives longest; therefore eternity should be his scope." (Thomas Manton)
"Men that believe not another world, are the ready actors of any imaginable mischiefs and tragedies in this." (John Howe)
