That Beautiful Something

Thursday, October 25, 2012

2 Thessalonians 3

Stand before the Lord at the end of your life. Is there some contribution you wished you could have made for the world? You are not dead yet. There is time for you to discover more clearly, what you could do to make a difference for the Lord in a world so indifferent to God.

Take this suggestion as you read the warning that Paul makes against idleness. It is not about being busy for the sake of being busy; rather it means to keep at your life-work—that beautiful something that you and only you can make for God.

Keep company with those who have a life, because they live life for the Lord.
