Here are the observations about life from a man who didn’t know Jesus.
Shakespeare’s quotes on the meaning of life have always interested me and I now realize most people agree with them.
“To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow, creeps in this petty pace from day to day to the last syllable of recorded time; And all our yesterdays have lighted fools. The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing.”
As You Like it.
“All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, and one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages. At first, the infant, Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms.”
Without God’s thinking and plan under consideration, these sentiments seem to be true to me in my life’s sample of humanity’s thinking.
This blog comments on God’s thinking on having a life of meaning and passing it on. In this blog I have quoted many great men of God on their last thoughts and words of wisdom recorded to family and other people. This was their observation on having a great life.
Read them and think on them carefully.
When reading, note what element is missing by our standards on a great preparation for a meaningful life.
I pray for your continued walk and life with meaning.
This blog was written by a longtime friend and coworker for Jesus, Skip Tschantz. This topic is discussed and taught around the circuit. I felt Skip brought meaningful clarity to the issue.
If you recall, my recent blog discussions have focused on knowing God. The questions to consider for this blog are:
1. If I slip and fail at obedience, what does it mean? What do I need to do?
2. If I think I am saved for sure, but live mostly by the world standards, what should this mean to me?
Always appreciate all questions and comments.
Maybe we should wear a blue ribbon?
Your servants in Christ,
Gayle and Skip
This has been on my mind all week long. Decided to drown you in another blog. It is 33-motivators-rewards to keep up with my naming convention.
There are over 100 references in the Bible to the concept of rewards. I think this deserves your thought and consideration as you start another year.
God bless you and hurry back Jesus.
Pray this extra blog isn’t too much.
Your servant in Christ,
