Day 20 of 40 Days of Lent
You only get one life.
How are you spending yours?
Time is a funny thing. The days are long, but the years? Well, they just fly by. Days and weeks all turn into years and before you turn around, the kids are grown and gone and you are left to decide how to spend the rest of your days.
Luke 9:2-3 says this: And He sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal. And He said to them, “Take nothing for your journey.”
The devotion today was that God gives us only one life to live. A life that glorifies God goes out and proclaims the Kingdom of God and does not worry about unnecessary material things. This kind of life doesn’t just pass idly by and eventually passes away–this kind of life strives to make an eternal difference.
Time is of the essence. A valuable commodity.
Are you making an eternal difference? Am I?
What would it look like to live a life that isn’t about you? Your comforts? Your wants? Your things? It’s hard not to get caught up in the stuff in this me-centered world.
What matters most in how you live your life, is how you treat others.
Spend your days well.
