Pastor's Monthly Message...September..2016

September 2016

Today

Those people who have some clue that they have not too long to live on this earth, those who are ill, aged, have an insight into the meaning of life. They soon come to the conclusion that life is to be lived to the fullest because each day might well be the last.
The term "bucket list" is now commonly used to indicate that each new day should be filled with some new experience that the days that we have left should be lived to the fullest. Life is then not measured just by its length but by its depth.
To live is not simply to breath; it is to experience, to make use of our senses, to be able to feel. Simply to acquire a lot of things, fame or sensual pleasure is to spend or trade irreplaceable time for that which is worth very little. To soon life is gone. Even as I write this and you read it, a portion of time is gone forever. Life is short. whether we live to 20 or 100, we all lose the same thing, the opportunity to "live for today".
One individual expressed it this way, "If I had a chance to live life over, I would do things quite differently. I would understand at the beginning that much of life is spent in vain pursuits. If I could do it over again, I would hate less, love more, work less overtime and spend more time with family, argue less, listen more, collect fewer debts and make more friends. If God granted me a second chance, I would grow closer to living things - to petunias, to aspen trees, to kittens to my children, Bedtime stories would be more important than news stories, valentines and birthdays more important than payday. I would never go to bed without saying to someone, "I love you" or without experiencing the beauty of a song, poem or painting. And finally each morning as I arose I would repeat these words; "The past is gone and tomorrow may never come so I will live for today".
