I am but a shadow of my future self

How I live now matters. My body matters. My mind matters. It is not discarded in the future, so I can treat my current life any way I want.

Current gleanings from NT Wright’s book, Surprised by Hope:

I am but a shadow of my future self.

How I love now matters.

What we do in the present matters. It will last into God’s future. Our vocation. Our gifts. Our actions. Our care. All of it is getting us ready for our future selves.

All along the way we are building for God’s Kingdom.
