As often has been said, "Today is the first day of the rest of your life." So many will live today for the purpose of making a living. That certainly is a large part of who we are and certainly important. However, what is much more important is having a life. Jesus said, "I came that you might have life, and that you might have it more abundantly." To be abundant is to be overflowing, full, and having the ability to give to others. Many in our world are starving for an example of a life lived abundantly. If you know Christ, pause, reflect, and consider the fact that you are to be an example of who Christ is, and can be, in the lives of those with whom you come in contact. Lift your hands, clap for joy, sing His Praise, YOU ARE ALIVE IN HIM ! If those around you don't have a smile, give them one. If the folks next to you only speak of pain, hurt, and sorrow, share the "life" you have. God has a tool in this world to show His love, His peace, and His joy, regardless of current circumstances. It is YOU !! Be a tool in the hands of the great Creator of life. You may be amazed at what he builds thru you !
