He had set eternity in the human heart

The title of this post is from Ecclesiastes 3:11.

The quest for eternity is deep within us all.

Our only portal to eternity is  through death.  Seeing death through the eyes of faith means what will stretch before us in our death and resurrection is far greater than what we leave behind.  

The full quote from Ecclesiastes:

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.
