1. Give and Do Your Best
2. Enjoy God’s Gifts
3. Sacrifice the Idol of Comfort
4. Live in Light of Eternity
… In his novel, The Chosen, Chaim Potok illustrated this through a father’s wise words to his son, Reuven. “Human beings do not live forever, Reuven. We live less than the time it takes to blink an eye, if we measure our lives against eternity. . . . I learned a long time ago, Reuven, that a blink of an eye in itself is nothing, but an eye that blinks, that is something. A span of life is nothing. But the man who lives that span, he is something.”
We each have a blink. We can waste it in sinful busyness or laziness or discontentment or distraction. Or the gospel of Jesus Christ can change how we spend our time. Living for Him means we view our life as His. It means we seize life with intention and passion. It means we do, give, and be our best; enjoy God’s gifts; sacrifice the idol of comfort; and live in light of eternity. It means we resolve with teenaged Jonathan Edwards to live with all our might, while we do live.
Time is of the essence. What will you do next?
