The greatest use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it. (William James, American philosopher and psychologist)
As children, we didn’t understand that there is more to life than the now. We didn’t think beyond what we might be doing at any given time. As we grew, we learned that there are many tomorrows; in fact, they will continue beyond our lifetime. Hopefully, we’ve learned the great value of contributing to those worthy causes that will last long into the future.
For through wisdom your days will be many, and years will be added to your life (Proverbs 9:11). As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received (Ephesians 4:1).
