Word Of The Month

“Live each day as it were your last.” 

 

I was surprised when the tour guide used this quote to bid farewell to our group. If a non Christian knows the brevity of life, how about us?

 

The frailty of our existence led the psalmist to pray, “Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” Psalm 90:12

Two thoughts come into my mind as I consider our short life on earth.

 

1. Life passes quickly. No one knows when we have to leave. In the past few weeks, our church had seen the death of 5 family members, aged between 50 to over 80. It’s important to treasure each day and not waste it. We need to take care of our health as a good steward of the body.

 

2. Eternity is much more important than our earthly life. We spend our time & energy to develop our career and to build our finances so that we can enjoy a good life. It is time to give priority to matters of eternal value. To invest our time & energy to keep close to God and to extend His kingdom.

 

“Store your treasures in heaven … Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously.” Jesus says in Matthew 6:20, 33.

 

As we move into the last 3 months of 2018, may we live wisely & fully for this life and for eternity!
