I was in my car a couple of weeks ago, and I was listening to a country station. The song that started playing was “Live Like You Were Dying” by Tim McGraw. I started to think of what I would do if I knew I would be dying soon.
God hasn’t guaranteed any of us tomorrow. I started to think of what I would like to accomplish if I could before I died. A lot of the things he mentioned in the song are things that I would like to do as well. When I heard the lyrics, I realized that I could be doing better in forgiving other people and being the friend I would like to have. I’m still learning how to do this, but it has become a greater mission in my life. I also realized that I wanted to read more as well. It’s hard to know how to do certain things if we don’t try to learn the topics. I’m going to try to read more this upcoming year. I’m currently reading a book I really enjoy.
God commands us to do these things that were mentioned, and I want to do what God has commanded of me. If we do these things then it helps in advancing the gospel.
- “Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring” ~ Proverbs 27:1 ESV
- “Come now, you who say, ‘Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit’— yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, ‘If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that’” ~ James 4:13-15 ESV
- “An intelligent heart acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge” ~ Proverbs 18:15 ESV
