ONLY ONE LIFE…


I have a plaque hanging in my house.  It says this…

“Only one life, ’twill soon be past,

Only what’s done for Christ, will last!

For me to live is Christ…”

That last part is from Philippians 1:21

I’ve had that plaque for years.  I “see” it everyday.  But today, in my hectic morning routine, I really saw it!  For the first time, in a long time, I let its meaning soak in.

All this stuff I do…all this running around…this busyness is useless in the BIG PICTURE of things.  Don’t get me wrong…everyday life and all of it’s time-consuming efforts are needed to survive in this world; ….But what am I doing for the next world? ….The eternal world to come?

I realized that my everyday duties are necessary…but I need to add Jesus to the things I do to make an impact on this world, and it will in turn make an impact on the world yet to come!

Be kind.  Be humble.  Be thoughtful.  Smile.  Share Jesus with someone today…
