Live for today

What would you do if you found out you only had a few weeks to live? I watched a movie today with that premise. To make a long story short, this woman went out and indulged her every fantasy. She started her life over and bought all the fancy things she never could afford. She engaged in risky relationships and no longer watched what she was eating. Three months later she was still here. When she went back to her doctor, she was told that the cancer had disappeared. She was in remission.

It was a nice story but totally devoid of any faith or moral teaching. It was the story of a woman who lived for today and considered death a dead end. That's why I ask the question: What would you do as a person of faith if you found out you only had a few weeks to live?

Once you've answered the question I have another one for you. What is stopping you from living that way right now? Don't wait until it is too late. Start living for God now. Start experiencing his grace and power right now. Start loving your family and friends and giving them your time and energy now.

The Scriptures say that no one knows the day or the hour when the Son of man is coming. The same is true for the day of our returning to him. So live like there is no tomorrow and enjoy the blessings as you live with God.
