A life of doing wrong is being as a blood-thirsty undead.
A life of doing good is being a servant.
A state of doing nothing … is where Death is.
This is what is below mediocrity and above suicide, though both mediocrity and suicide find themselves in the bottomless pit of nothingness.
Trying to live a life without pain, sacrifice, joy and sorry, death and birth, disappointments and the unexpected is all that is made up this life that we have made for ourselves and that others have put in place for us.
Live or die.
No, this is not another version of the slogan of the God-less, “survival of the fittest. The strong shall live and the weak shall die”.
This is not survival, this is really living. Where character is born, where the innocent are rescued, where what is, “good”, is made better and what is better keeps improving.
“Ceux qui luttent, ne sont pas sûrs de gagner, mais ceux qui ne luttent pas ont déjà perdu.” Berthold Brecht, poète et dramaturge allemand du XXème siècle.”
Translation: Those who fight are not sure of winning, but those who do not fight have already lost”
However, a happy life never always means a joyful life, a life that God made you to live, which is the only form of Life there is. Anything apart from what God has intended to happen will always end up in misery and destruction.
Colossians 1:16-17 (KJV)
16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
Live today. Our LORD has made a call to us. He laid out our destinies before us and gives us the answer to His call, if we will choose to follow in it (Read all of it from Deuteronomy 30:15-20):
19I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
Heed His call now.
He says again in 2 Corinthians 6:2. “(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)”
