Each Day

Posted on · Posted in Wisdom, World View

Each day that passes without a vision for heaven is day lost for God’s glory.

Each day that passes without gratitude for Christ’s sacrifice for you is a day lost on yourself.

Each day that passes without compassion for those who are lost is a day lost in self-indulgence.

Each day that passes without passion for showing the love of Christ to those you love is day lost exploiting those whom you love.

Each day that is dominated by anger that you are not appreciated is a day lost in self-pity.

Stop losing days to your desires that make you feel that life is against you. 

Live each day as a precious gift. Live and love to know your savior and add to his reputation among men.
