Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

how to live...

how to live

"What if we all carried little timers
that counted down the days of our lives?
Maybe the timer's a bit dramatic.
Just the date would do.
It could be tattooed on our foreheads
like the expiration date on a milk bottle.
It might be a good thing.
Maybe we'd stop wasting our lives
worrying about things that never happen,
or collecting things that we can't take with us.
We'd probably treat people better.
We certainly wouldn't be screaming at someone
who had a day left.
Maybe people would finally stop living
like they're immortal.
Maybe we would finally learn how to live."

- Richard Paul Evans
