I think a word everyone should spend some time reflecting upon is Life.
Life is a precious gift.
You only get one. Make it count.
Don't waste your Life on selfish pursuits or in strife and bitterness. It's not worth it!
God's Word teaches that before we were even born, the length of our days is recorded in His book. The moment you are conceived, it is already known how long you will walk on this earth.
Don't waste even a second.
What's the best way to spend this incredible gift of Life you've been given?
The best way to spend your days is not to look after #1 or try to find something that makes YOU happy but to give your love away. It's a paradox, but the more you give love away, the more it comes back to you!
A guy once asked Jesus what the greatest commandment was. He was hoping to be justified thinking Jesus would name one that he was good at keeping. But Jesus cut right to the motive and declared love was the greatest commandment. Love God with everything that is in you, and the second greatest commandment is to love your neighbor as yourself.
Everything is based on love. If all loved as they should, there would never be any laws broken.
If you spend your Life loving, you'll have no regrets. I never heard of anyone on their deathbed saying, "Oh, I loved too much."
Remember, if you want to be loved, you must first love.
