Hebrews 11:9-10

By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God.
(NIV)


I love that quote, "...he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God."

We are living in tents. The possessions we have, the homes we live in, and yes, even our own bodies are perishable. They are tents. They are mobile, and they do not last. They are most assuredly not a permanent dwelling.

Like Abraham, we need to look forward to that city with foundations. Something permanent. Something built by the master builder Himself.

What are you looking forward to?
