Too soon I too will die

Too soon I too will die

That fact ought to influence how I live. The details of how I live.. Ecclesiastes 7:2 says  it is good to go a house of mourning so that I take to heart the fact that too soon I too will die,

So why am I collecting books, clothing, money, furniture, fame etc. when all too soon I too will die. Life is all about how I mirror Jesus’ love to others. What have I done in the past 24 hours that directly reflects the love of Jesus to others? What can I do in the next 24 hours to directly show Jesus’ love to others? Notice the word “directly”. This mean what I do must be one on one with the other person. Giving money to a charity is not directly sharing the love of Jesus.

I know that sounds like a real drag, a real kill joy. However I have found in these past 70 years that more I focus on loving others the greater my own freedom and joy. Loving others is the fastest path to personal peace and happiness.

Try it for a month and see what happens.
