"The world and all its passionate desires will one day disappear. But the man who is following God’s will is part of the permanent and cannot die." 1 John 2:17
Isn't it interesting that the gravest human fear - death - and the highest human aspiration - the hope that our lifetime on this earth will have lasting importance: will "live past us" - are both resolved in joining the Kingdom of Heaven? In it, we become solid and permanent; and death holds no fear.
Isn't that beautiful to remember?
