(Linking up with Amanda to share this that has been on my heart for a while.)
In all the lessons that I’ve learned in 24 years the one that comes to the forefront the most is that life without Jesus, life without God’s forgiveness isn’t really worth living. Why? It’s because all the things we see here, money, success, food, fitness are things that are gifts, but they aren’t eternal. The body I have here. The drinks I’ve enjoyed. The food that nourishes my body? These are all blessings, but if I live for them, they become … curses. The whole reason is that we weren’t created to just live for this world.
One of the biggest things that has been weighing heavy on me lately is the eternal value of the human soul.
