Why are we here; A question often asked by children but in time we stop asking and lapse into assumptions and unknowing.
We live in the tension between heaven and earth. Some put everything in the here and now, thinking there is nothing more to gain. Others put it all in the sweet bye and bye assuming all gain is on the other side.
The truth is, some things you have now and others are gained in the hereafter. The right thing to do is put the emphasis where God puts it.
