In Heaven: The Heart's Deepest Longing, Kreeft writes:
"Galaxies revolve and dinosaurs breed and rain falls and people fall in love and uncles smoke cheap cigars and people lose their jobs and we all die — all for our good, the finished product, God's work of art, the Kingdom of Heaven.

Do I trust that what God started, he will indeed bring to completion (Philippians 1:6)?
