When does the real life begin? My reminder that life is here and now was a jolt of unfortunate circumstances. I observe others that seem to be skimming along the surface of life, never fully committing to anything. Still others are butterflies flitting from one thing to another. Then there are some I don’t see at all because they are like I was for a period of time, isolated by their own design. Finally, to my joy, I’m meeting authentic Christian people who are out in the world living their life with bravado. They are in the work place, the market place, in meeting rooms, on the street. They are there unpretentiously living lives that model relaxed mental attitudes.
I’m joining them. I’m adjusting my attitude to one of love, acceptance, forgiveness, gentleness, peace. I want to focus on all the good that Jesus the Christ modeled for us. I’m equipped to do that through his teaching.
Some will tell you that life only begins in eternity. That theory doesn’t fly for me. Life is now, after death and into eternity. Breathe, exhale, move…LIVE!
