Pastor Daniel shared with me once that heaven is the “engine of our faith.” If you really understand what heaven is, it makes you live out life harder here on Earth. Fully knowing our goal and where we will be makes us work harder today. “Should I suffer long, this is not my home. So I will sing like I will there.” When I read or sing this, it’s not like “an excuse” to deal with today’s problem, it’s motivation. Living this life is not dealing with the everyday. It’s a calling.
