THE UNFINISHED FUTURE
THE WAY TO LIVE // ∞
Merely learning these things will not do us any good unless we add them to our daily life.
There are a lot of people who believe in a lot of things, Christians included. The world doesn’t need believers. The world needs people who live their beliefs.
Jesus gave us simple rules for life: love God with all our heart and then love all people like God loves us. It is hard to practice love like that when our spirit, soul and body are so easily diverted and consumed by desires, passions, fears and lusts for things outside of our control. The Stoics can help us learn and remember what is up to us and what is up to God alone.
“It is the Holy Spirit’s job to convict people, God’s job to judge and my job to love.” // Billy Graham[i]
We must remind ourselves of the role God has given us, which is simply to love people. That is within our control; the rest is up to God.
