No matter what you’re age it’s always important you keep life in right perspective. Here are some timeless truths all grounded in God’s word that can help us all continue to live wisely.
#1 Live In The Now.
Too often we’re caught looking back in our past or waiting for what we think lies ahead. “Yesterday is gone, tomorrow is not promised, and today is a gift that’s why they call it the present.” There is no more important moment than the one that sits in front of you. So, make the most of where God has placed you right now. Love while you can. Do what you can. Put your total faith in Jesus while you can
#2 Learn To Be Content.
We live in a society that always must have more and more. We’ve just got to have a better cell phone, a newer car, a bigger house, and of course way more money. There is nothing wrong with any of these things. But, until you learn to be content no matter your circumstances you will never find joy despite your circumstances.
#3 Quit Comparing Yourself To Others.
I love social networking as much as anyone. What I absolutely hate is how it makes many feel that life is always a competition. We compare our appearances, accomplishments, relationships, and even our children. Every person is different and no two situations are the same. Be the best you that God created you to be and don’t spend your time constantly comparing yourself with others. Let Jesus Christ be your example and God be your God.
#4 Live Like You Are Dying.
Based on pretty solid statistics 100 percent of us will die one day. Death has no respecter of age or position. Try swallowing this worldwide statistic my friend. An average of 151, 600 people die each day. Over 55 million people die each year. No matter what you do in life make sure you are living with eternity in mind. Why? Because that is your next destination and your appointment will be here way sooner than you think.
#5 Stay On Your Knees.
Anytime we think we’re large and in charge we’re bound for disappointment. Life is full of humbling moments. You will never be able to face life’s constant ups and downs alone. You’re not smart enough or strong enough. You can get through anything with the help of your Heavenly Father. Get on your knees and stay on your knees before God. Seek His will above else, let Him guide your your every step, and trust Him to strengthen you.
(Ephesians 5:15-17) “So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do.”
