Jesus said in John 10:10 that He came to give us life, and to give it more abundantly! But consider these quotes:
- We are always planning to live…. – Proust
- We are never living, but hoping to live. – Pascal
- We are always getting ready to live, but never living. – Emerson
- One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon—instead of enjoying the roses that (bloom) outside our windows today – Dale Carnegie
Fall is a great time to enjoy the sights, smells, colors, and opportunities of life. Remember that Jesus gives us eternal life for tomorrow, but abundant life for today!
