Live To The Lord
"For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord.” Romans 14:8
"There is a God, and He is good, and His love while free, has a self-imposed cost: We must be good to one another." George H. W. Bush
For many this time of year, there will be an empty place setting at Christmas. A seat that is empty and a gift that will not be given or received. While this will be met with moments of sadness, there is also great joy - especially for those who live life with a view of eternity under God's Lordship. This week we will watch a celebration of a man's life. A leader of our country - President George H. W. Bush. Regardless of if you agreed or disagreed with his positions, politics, and policies, he had one view that held firm - he lived "to the Lord." And when we live life and death to the Lord, they will both be done exceedingly well.
DO THIS: Live to the Lord.
PRAYER: God, may my life be lived well and may I make decisions now that benefit the present and my eternity.
