We’re going to be there how long?

“We are the most entertained generation that’s ever walked the face of the earth and we’re bored out of our minds. More to do now than there has ever been in the history of the world and we’re still restless and bored. With God you never hit that ceiling; you never get to the bottom. It’s ever increasing, ever expanding. . . When I was in church and they used to sing Amazing grace — that line: “When we’ve been there 10,000 years, bright shining as the sun, we’ve no less days to sing God’s praise than when we first begun.” That sounded like a nightmare to me. It’s like Groundhog Day [the movie] forever…The idea that 10,000 years is no time off the clock to sing praise to God sounded miserable to me … until you understand that there is no cap on and there is no bottom to the ever expanding infinite joy found in our God. And then the fact that there’s no less days to sing God’s praise . . . Oh, get me there!”
