Live Life to the Fullest

Ephesians 3:18-19
Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God.
First, I am not promoting an existential philosophy in this devotion, I am simply saying we should enjoy life more. A good book to read on this subject would be Ecclesiastes. Much of what we do, in the end, really does not matter. We spend a great deal of time majoring on the minors. I saw a bumper sticker once that read, " The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing." The main thing is our relationship with Christ and after that it is our relationship with our fellow man. Many of the things that occupy our time are things that in the end just do not matter. So today try and enjoy your life a little more. Use your imagination, try something different, do something new. If you are not sure how then spend a day with a child and they will show you. They are not yet consumed with the mundane and still see the wonder in everything.
