Don’t Waste Your Life

Don’t Waste Your Life. (Post updated since first posted.)

Click on the “podcast” link, and watch the videos. Those are convicting. I don’t think I’ve ever watched more convicting videos in my life. It just makes you think, “Wow, look how temporary this life is. Why waste it on trivial things, like so many of us do? I don’t ever want to look back and think “I’ve wasted it”.

I love the way that whoever did the video juxtaposes the things we spend so much time on – our busyness, our treasures, with the truth that these things mean nothing in the long run. The streets of New York City, filled with people rushing about so much that they don’t realize how much they need to give their lives to something more meaningful. One that particularly hit home was the one of a house. Unlike the others, no words were spoken. An abandoned looking house is sitting there, while the words “Matthew 6:20” are placed in the middle of the screen. They fade away, and then in an instant, the house is knocked over. All the effort put into that house was ultimately for nothing – the house stands no more. It was a poignant reminder that our lives are also like that, espicially if we do not do anything that will last.
