Your daily goal:
Philippians 3:14 “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
(Monday-Friday, from my morning quiet time, I will write a short thought for that day which I pray God will use to motivate you to ‘GO’ for that day. Your objective is simple…to GO…to GO OUT and share the love of Christ with someone in that day….to GO and bear fruit …to be light to the world.)
Today’s Daily Light
I find I get a tad melancholy in the weeks between Christmas and the upcoming beginning of a New Year. I think a part of it is ‘as I grow older’…I realize just how much more quickly the last year seemed to pass and it makes me almost afraid to see the next ‘new ‘year open its door and begin because I know just how fast it too will speed by.
Those verses in the bible that speak to the truth of this come to mind;
Psalm 144:4, NIV “Man is like a breath; his days are like a fleeting shadow.”
James 4:14..NIV “What is your life? You are a mist that appears for little while and then vanishes.”
If there is one thing that holds through time…regardless of how time treats us or moves us from season to season and year to year…the one thing that holds constant and is forever true…is that LOVE is and will always be that ‘one thing’ that we can be and do that is always the highest and best activity. Love is that ‘forever and eternal’ gift to all of the people that come onto the stage of the life we live.
So… as we are wrapping up the end of another year ….getting ready to begin a new one….let us set our hearts and minds to love with all our might. Let each of us leave a legacy of love for the people that we share space in all the areas of our lives.
So I pray that in 2018….that we will love deeper and further and wider and longer. God created love…every aspect of it in its full emotional and intellectual experience because He ‘is’ love and He wanted us to have that knowledge and experience of the wonder and awe of love. It is the one thing that we know we can do to guide all of our activities toward others that will last forever. Love, love, and love, like there is no tomorrow. Amen
