Don’t Waste Your Life In 2010

I am breaking the techno-fast for one post at the beginning of this new year.

I read this the other day, and was convicted.  It will find a prominent place in my study.  May God help us all resolve to spend our days well in 2010, however many we may have, for we could be dead tonight  ::

It is not possible that men with mean and servile ideas and aims, prevailing throughout their lives, should produce anything that is admirable and worthy of immortality.

(The Greek literary critic, Longinus)

Implication ::

If you starve your soul with a life of trivial pleasure pursuits, it will leave you bankrupt, unable to produce anything worthwhile, with nothing but empty creations.

Resolve ::

Do not waste your life this way.  It is too precious, and will pass too quickly.

James 4.14 How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.  (NLT-SE)
