It's hard to understand eternity - our sinful human hearts and minds cannot comprehend something with no end. Everything we know in this life has a shot clock tied to it : the work week, school, life, pain, sickness, supper....everything we experience we inherently know only lasts for awhile.
However, we will at some point experience eternity. One day we will live with our Father in Heaven and that experience will have no end. In the meantime we should anxiously await and prepare for that day. Like Solomon says in Ecclesiastes, "I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live"
Ecclesiastes 3:10: I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race. He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live.
