Living Carefully

An optimist is a person who starts a new diet on Thanksgiving Day. (Irv Kupcinet, late American columnist)

Thanksgiving celebrations were nearly a week ago. After that scrumptious turkey dinner, did anyone decide it was time to go on a diet, hoping to lose some of the anticipated holiday weight gain? As Kupcinet suggests, only an optimist would likely do so. But, in light of the abundance many of us enjoy, isn’t it a good time to consider ways to live more carefully?

So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. (Ephesians 5:15)
