Life is short. No doubt about it. If that confuses you, just have some children and watch as the time flies by.
Since life is short, how should we live? Here are some ideas…
1. Live full of light – stop living in the dark…turn on the lights. Everything doesn’t have to be so dark and heavy and depressing. Have you ever been around someone who just lights up any room they enter? Do you secretly desire to be like them? You should…everybody likes light. “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)
2. Live full of life – seems funny to say…if you are living aren’t you full of life? I beg to differ. How often do you see people who just merely exist? They are everywhere…I see dead people…dead dreams, dead hopes, dead spirits. Be alive…live fully…eyes wide open! Jesus said; “My purpose is to give life in all its fullness.” (John 10:10b)
3. Live full of love – singing…“what the world needs now…is love sweet love…it’s the only thing that there’s just too little of…” Such a true lyric. The truth is, love is infinite. Just when we think we have learned how to love new dimensions open up. Make a commitment to love…love passionately…love unconditionally…love purposefully…love unashamedly. “He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.” (1John 4:8)
In essence, we should live like life is short…because it is.
