Don’t be afraid your life will end; be afraid that it will never begin. (Grace Hansen, author)
It’s clear that physical life will inevitably come to an end for every human being. So, Hansen is obviously speaking of living a meaningful life, a life of significance and benefit. For many, there is often a sense of uselessness; life just doesn’t seem to have any meaning for them. Life can take on new meaning when we stop thinking about ourselves and begin reaching out to serve others.
Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others. (Philippians 2:4)
