We cannot choose how many years we will live, but we can choose how much life those years will have. (John Maxwell, leadership speaker and author)
As we grow older, we begin to think more and more about how much longer we might have to live. It’s a worthless pursuit, because unless we’ve been given a terminal diagnosis, we can’t know the future. We do know, however, that all of us will eventually die. We can’t choose the date, but we can determine to live life to the fullest for whatever time we have.
Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so we may grow in wisdom (Psalm 90:12).
