Word: “Whether we live or whether we die, it must be for the Lord. Alive or dead, it is the Lord to whom we belong.” (Romans 14:8)
Wonder: Life is a gift and death is inevitable. But life is not about putting off death as long as possible. Nor is it about trying to suck the maximum amount of enjoyment possible for ourselves out of life. What truly gives our lives meaning is whether or not we are living up to our reason for being. And that reason is the same for all of God’s creation – to honor and glorify God however we can. So how will you try to praise God in whatever it is you do today?
