All Good Things Must Come to an End…Except…

Yesterday, as I left Florida and the waves and the sun and the sand the phrase “all good things must come to an end” came to my mind. My week of vacation had to come to an end and the phrase seemed appropriate. I looked up on the internet to find that the origination of this phrase “all good things must come to an end” is originally attributed to Geoffrey Chaucer in the 1300s. But did Chaucer really know what he was talking about? With all respect to English literature lovers everywhere, I think Chaucer was wrong.

In fact, the best things in life do not come to an end. The bible teaches that followers of Jesus get to experience eternal joy and glory in heaven.   Heaven lasts forever and it never comes to an end. Heaven is an existence without sin. Heaven is an existence with perfect relationships. Heaven is an existence with perfect everything. So, with all due respect to Mr. Chaucer, all good things do not come to an end. My final question then is how much interest and attention are eternal things getting in your life? Everything in this life will end, whether it is good or not. And unfortunately, most people seem to spend most of their time and energy on this life, which will end. I suggest you spend your energy and effort on those things that will never end, where it is literally “all good”.
