Blessings of Looking Forward


All these people died still believing 

what God had promised them.

They did not receive what was promised,

but they saw it all from a distance and welcomed it.

They agreed that they were foreigners

and nomads here on earth.

Obviously people who say such things 

are looking forward to a country they can call their own.

…a heavenly homeland.

Hebrews 11:4, 5, 7, 8, 11, 13-14, 16
