Life Is Short- Part 2

In the last post, we talked about how short life is.  I think we’d all agree that we need to make the most of every moment; to live with no regrets.  We don’t have time to do things God never called us to do or try to be something He never called us to be.

The key is for us to seek the Lord to determine what He wants us to do, and not necessarily what we want to do. Why? To avoid wasting a lot of precious time on idle ambitions that will lead nowhere.  hourglassThis is important since time is the material that makes up our lives.  Therefore, the best idea is to seek God for His plan for your life.

God will never lead you in the wrong direction.  Sometimes His direction may not make sense to you, but if you trust Him, you will eventually see that He knows what he is doing. Life is short, and the best life is one lived for God.

Don’t hold anything back from the Lord.  Give Him your all, and He will take it, bless it, and multiply it- just as He did the fish and loaves.  He will use it for your good and for His glory.

Ephesians 5:16 uses the phrase, “redeeming the time.”  In other words, make the most of the time you have.  We are to invest time instead of wasting it.  We do this by living for God.  As we do, we are investing in something and Someone bigger than ourselves.

The life you live for God will be the legacy you leave.  It will outlast you and last into eternity.  Life is short.  Live it well by living it for God.
