Life is brief, even at its longest. Even with the accumulation of many years, it seems not nearly enough.
We are a vapor, spending our minutes, hours, days, and years, then wondering where they went so quickly.
The breath of the Creator blew life into clay and we became eternal, the longing for true vitality and essence imbedded in our DNA. We are connected to Him who gave of Himself to bring us into existence. Is it a wonder, then, that eternity is set in our hearts?
How then shall we live?
In self-seeking pursuits? In pride of accomplishments? In looking out for number one?
In gathering to ourselves houses, lands, stuff that we think will satisfy?
Knowing there is an end to our beginning, how do we live to pursue the worth of a life?
Love God. Love one another.
Be honest. Be fair. Be trustworthy.
Share your wealth, your belongings, your heart.
Be real. Don’t hide your true self. You are fearfully and wonderfully made to be unique and precious in God’s sight. Live out your true potential, exercising the gifts within you.
Show kindness at every turn, to every person. Practice patience just as you hope to receive it. Learn to be content in this present situation.
Forgive. Give mercy. Let your heart be moved with compassion.
Seek the Creator who gave you breath. Accept the love He freely gives, the grace that is a gift through Jesus Christ.
He gives us value and worth because He loved us first.
