YOU CAN CHANGE THE WORLD
I know it’s cliche, but what if we really did choose to live every day as if it were our last?
What if we had to go through the exact routine today that we went through yesterday
not telling anyone it was our last day here on earth.
Knowing that when we laid our heads on our pillows tonight and closed our eyes, we would wake up in heaven.
How would this change how we chose to live? How we looked at our loved ones and treated them? How we lived our lives in front of those we work with, knowing that today was the last time to share our Savior with them?
We wouldn’t worry about tomorrow because we would know there would be no tomorrow.
Today would be so much more important to us.
We would cherish every single second with our loved ones, with our children. With our spouses.
We would make time for family because we would know we didn’t have any time left.
We would put our phones down and try to teach our children as much as we could, knowing we wouldn’t be here tomorrow.
We would love on our spouses deeply, and be so forgiving of so much.
You know where I’m going with this.
Preachers have preached on it often~”What if today was your last.”
When we hear that, we usually tend to think outside the box of reality. All the extravagant things we would do our last day on earth.
But think about having to stay inside the box of reality. Having to live out your day today not changing a thing except for how you view it, and then how you act and react ~because that view is drastically changed.
And yet God tells us-
We aren’t promised tomorrow.
Psalm 90:12, Matthew 6:34
We aren’t supposed to worry. Matthew6:25-34
We’re supposed to love on our children and train them up in the way they should go. Proverbs 22:6
We’re supposed to forgive and love our spouses and each other as Christ loved the church and gave Himself for it. Ephesians 4:32, 5:25
We’re supposed to be a living testimony for Christ in all we do or say.
We’re supposed to find the joy of Christ in everything. Every single second.
John 15:11, I Peter 1:8, Philippians 4:4,
Romans 14:17, Psalm 16:11,
Just as if today were our last.
This December lets choose to live every day to the fullest, with a different view.
To cherish every single second and not allow the Christmas chaos to change our perspective.
To view each day as a beautiful gift from God and strive to share that present with everyone.
Let’s determine to be thankful for Christmas and focus on Christ~just as if we will be seeing him tonight.
A drastically changed view can drastically change the world.
Through Christ alone and for His glory we can change the world.
One day at a time.
