“Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” is a well-known phrase in the United States Declaration of Independence. The phrase gives three examples of the “unalienable rights” which the Declaration says have been given to all human beings by their Creator, and which governments are created to protect.
“A thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy. But I came to give life—life that is full and good.”John 10:10 ERV. http://bible.com/406/jhn.10.10.erv
Both of these phrases talk about having a good life. The Declaration of Independence verifies these rights were intended by the creator of the world, the right to have life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The Bible tells you that the devil will try and take it away from you. But if you trust in Jesus you can have it back and more abundantly.
I say that to say, what are you willing to believe? I’m thinking most of you believe that time is unlimited. People are holding grudges against people who love them, people are being petty like it’s a badge of honor. Love those who love you, forgive easy, love hard and don’t let the sun go down on your anger. I’m not talking about going to church or being a religious person I’m talking about being decent. Don’t let social media and petty people keep you from loving on your family.
This is not new stuff I’m telling you, I’m just saying life is too short. People are dying of all ages, and standing over their casket talking about how much you loved them is just crazy and unproductive. Tell me you love me and show me while I live cause there is no guarantee I will survive this day nor wake up tomorrow.
Holidays seem to stir up emotions, so I beg of you today as they get stirred up, let them go for good.
