What are we doing here? Are we existing or living?

A person who’s existing goes to work day in and day out for 25 or more years. They’re not really excited about going to an unfulfilling job. They simply work because it gives them a paycheck to survive. They rarely make new friends and they don’t look for ways to be a blessing. Every now and then, that person does something fulfilling, but for the most part it’s a daily routine.

A person who’s living has a purpose fulfilling career. They may not be excited about going to work every day, but they find fulfillment in what they do. A person who’s living receives fulfillment by being a blessing. They like to make people smile, they lend a helping hand, they keep a positive attitude, and their positive actions make people remember their name or face.

Jesus died so that we can have abundant life. However, how abundant our life will be, is up to us. It’s our mindset. Wherever we are, we can make the choice to begin living. We can have a positive attitude, be a blessing, do something different, experience something new, make new friends, or simply be kind.

Make an impact on this world and honor the sacrifice of Jesus by living an abundant life.

John 10:10 (NLT) The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.
