Our personal story is part of the greater story of the Kingdom of God. This calls for us to live out of an eternal perspective, and perspective is incredibly important, because it is what we use to frame reality.
Many people today are living life through the lens of their own personal life and experiences, and therefore are living through a finite perspective. However, as we know from Ecclesiastes, God has placed eternity in the hearts of mankind. Therefore, if we are living with eternity in our hearts, but living out of a finite perspective for mission and life, we will find ourselves living in a place of perpetual dissatisfaction. We were made to live out an eternal story with an eternal purpose within the story of God.
