In contrast, in the headlines a few weeks now, I was somewhat shocked by what happened to 25-year-old Kristell. She was snatched from her home and brutally murdered by five young men. No one in her circle – from her family members to friends and office mates in the corporation where she had a thriving career – can expect or anticipate that Kristell’s young and promising life would end like this.
Whether age 16 or age 96, it’s therapeutic to always review our earthly journey. Because life is as fleeting as vapor, it is healthy that we make the most of our limited days. Have we been developing into the kind of persons that can honor God and men with our words, deeds, thoughts, feelings? Are we making the most of opportunities presented before us?
How much time do you have left? You are never sure. Life’s end comes at any age. You can’t change the way you spent your time in the past or avoid losses and mistakes that are already done. But from this moment on, you can resolutely choose to be better the remaining time of your life. You have the present moment – make the best of it!
