The life we live truly is a fragile thing. In the last few years I have seen the destruction of two sacred things: life and love. Each heartwrenching story I am sure could be matched by any of you reading this post. That is why the following challenge should hit home.
We have been given a sacred gift of life. Every second that passes by is a choice to act or sit. When Jesus was questioned on what the greatest commandments were he said "love God, love people" (my paraphrase). Using those precious moments of life to love people is the most respectable and righteous thing you can do. How many times have we wasted precious days of our lives (I don't mean the soap opera)?
Every day that I do not intentionally love my wife, or love on my family, or love on my friends or teens I waste. No life ever gets sustainably better without love. God IS love. I must use the two sacred gifst to their potential. I have been given one life to live. So have you. Are we living it intentionally?
