What are busy doing everyday? I assume you start the day busy thinking of what the day will look like, meetings, errands, bills to pay, obligations. We are bounded by the realities that we face everyday, and most of the time, this situation conquers the way we think and the way we do things, the different events and things that we do affects the decisions that we do, and most of the time we tend to forget the essence of why we live, the essence of the life that we have.
Many who are successful in life, in career, and have everything would tend to complain, is this what life is all about? While you look around see poor kids walking in the street, people inside the church, people taking public transport very contented with life. Have you ever wonder why is it like this?
We only live ones, life is so precious that I feel bad seeing people very desperate about life. We are created in the very image and likeness of God, in this likeness the Lord gave us the authority to rule over His creation. We are precious in the in the eyes of God, and His desire is for us to live life to the fullest, and in the fullness we get to recognized the many things that He is doing to us.
I guess, at the end of the day, it is in that recognition that without God we are all nothing, the jobs that we have, careers and perks that goes along with it, friends and families that we have, all because of the Lord.
May we not forget the real essence of life, at that is to proclaim the very greatness of God, manifested in the kind of life that we live. May we allow the Lord to conquer our life, following His will and ways, and not ours, living a life that is centered on Him, and not on the worldly ways, grounding are very self to the source of all life. And giving all the we have, soul, heart, mind, and strength to building the kingdom of God here on earth.
