Living Your Life to The Fullness
Life has so many realities and circumstances. There are those who have no idea that they are passing and others who know that they have a limited time here on the earth. Life can be different based on your background and family and location, but in the end, there is one common thing to all the people ? death is inevitable to all. So, knowing that death is real and that it comes at any time should not inspire your fear, but courage to live up your life by doing good things to yourself and to those around you. In fact, life should not be measured by how long one lived, but what did one achieve and how many lives did one touch during their lifetime. So, this is how you should measure life. Whether you are still young or grown-up already (elderly) there are many ideas that you should do that will bring meaning to your life. First of all, start with yourself. Yes, this is the ultimate way of living a life of meaning. Do not seek to make others rich while you are still poor in your heart. The bible asks “what shall it profit you If you gain the whole world and lose your soul?” The answer absolutely nothing. So, first of all, seek to build yourself. In life, there are many things that are sought after. Some of these are things are important while others are trivial. Some of those things are temporary whereas others are long-lasting. Among all the knowledge and riches one can gain, there is nothing that is more important than knowing and following the ways of God. It is often said, “it is not your spirit that lives in your body, but your body in your spirit”. This is a reality that many people tend to resist. But the truth is so. You are God’s own. And welcoming and befriending him in your life will save you from life’s confusion and it will make you a point of reference to others in terms of strength, wisdom, courage, forgiveness, intelligence and so many other characters. The world teaches to be independent and somehow a rebel against God. But then it does not teach the consequences that come from that sort of lifestyle. It is a mere loss to live your life in that sort of life. There are many people who are rich outwardly but who are poor and even paupers in their lives. Somehow those people have chosen it ? they have adopted to live their lives by some theories that separated them from the ways of God. On the other hand, there are many other people who are aging happily because they embraced the way of God and followed it from their youth-hood onward. Although these people are aging outwardly, they are being made new inwardly and that is what matters most. Perhaps you have so many things that you regret in your life ? the opportunities you did not grasp, the relationships you should have built, and so many other things. But the good news is that it is still possible to lead a life of happiness at your age, it is still right to embrace the lead marked by dignity and discovery in God. Made the decision today and because a better you.
