He has set eternity in the hearts of men

Ecclesiates 3

What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth? 10 I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it. 11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.  -kjv

What do workers gain from their toil? 10 I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race. 11 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.  -niv

What does the worker gain from his struggles? 10 I have seen the task that God has given people to keep them occupied. 11 He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also put eternity in their hearts, but man cannot discover the work God has done from beginning to end.   -hcsb

Observation:

God has placed a God-shaped vacuum in people’s heart but they are not able to understand it.

In kjv, it says  the heart of man is blinded by the desires of this world, which is opposite to that of God

  1. Since God made us from day #1 he knows why we think as we do and do as we do. God also knows why he has never told man what to expect in heaven. Most of us have had to work hard to make a living and raise our kids and we expect this but we do not know what to expect when we get to heaven. I believe this will be the time of true full time retirement as well as happiness when we are with Jesus.
