>One Life to Live…..

Posted: January 9, 2010 in Heaven, Life, Priorities

>This morning my son came into my bedroom and asked, “Dad, why does God give cats nine lives but us only one?”. After explaining to my son that “9 lives” was more about getting out of some bad spots in life, I told him that we need to make sure that we live our lives every day being our very best. “If we only get one life that means every day matters” I told him.

Are you living that way? Do you live your life in a intentional way with heaven in mind or just haphazardly go from day to day with only self gain in mind?

We are headed for eternity at a speed that is staggering. The Bible states that we shouldn’t focus on gaining “treasures” on earth.

Matt 6:19-21

19 ” Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 “But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; 21 for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

It begs the question then, where is our heart? Do we long for heaven or do we long for further comfort here?

Bottom Line:

We do only get one life here. No do overs. Let’s make today a day of storing up treasures in heaven rather than putting more in our closet that’s ultimately not going to last.

Only Promised today,
