You Only Live Once [YOLO]
We have all been to a funeral at some point in our lives. Most often, it's a funeral of someone you were close to. And amongst the many thoughts you have during the eulogy you can't help but think back to what that person did with their life while they were still alive. They either lived a full life or they seemed to sit back and let life pass them by.
The crazy thing is whether they lived a full life and seized the day to its fullest or just did... nothing...they still died... We all die. We all have the same fate there's no escaping the inevitable. But even though we have the same fate, God says "Everyday is a gift. It's all you get in exchange for the hard work of staying alive. Make the most of each one!" Ecclesiastes 9:9 MSG
The application of this biblical passage seems easy but in reality it's not easy. What's easy is doing nothing, not trying and letting life slip by. When God hands you a choice to live a life sold out for Him how will you choose? When you have a situation where you could be a light to someone even though it's going to take work and it's going to be hard, DO IT! Don't let the opportunity pass you by to live a life that's full of promise.
Jesus, I pray that as I live my life that I would seize the opportunities You place in front of me whether they seem hard or easy. I pray that I'll live my life to the fullest and all for Your glory. Amen.
