Golden Present

We do not know what is in store tomorrow, or, whether there is a tomorrow, or even a tonight! But still, we have the golden present. Now we are alive and passionate. What should we do now? Love all, serve all.

Yesterday I celebrated my birthday, we won’t go into the exact number. However, the number is large enough to claim a piece of wisdom to know that it is important to live each day to the fullest. Why does this kind of wisdom wait until you reach a ripe age? In my youth, I had extreme enthusiasm and energy, Life was good, challenging, exciting and one discovery after another. Strange, how life seasons you and you discover that the most important, fulfilling, meaningful things in life are much different than what you valued in your youth. For me the most important things are not things but LOVE and SERVICE.

If you don’t love what you are doing, why stay in it? If you don’t love the people around you, why not? Can’t you see the person of Christ that dwells in them?
If you are not willing to serve all, what is your purpose on this earth?

Love and service are very fulfilling and rewarding for me. In my new year of life that I begin today I want to hold and cherish the golden present, for the way I love and serve will determine my golden eternal future.

I invite you to examine, reflect, ponder your life today. Take advantage of the golden present to discover how well you are loving? Whom do you choose to love today? Whom do you offer your life in service. Enjoy the golden present! In fact I challenge you to enjoy the opportunity and blessing you have to love and serve in this golden present!
