Welcome to purposeful living today. Life is more of what we make out of it and not what happens to us. We shouldn't give life's battle the power to determine our mood. We must cultivate the habit of being happy always for it is in rejoicing and being thankful that we experience the good things of life. Do have a glorious day. You are blessed.

"He that would love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit. Let him turn away from evil and do right. Let him seek peace and pursue it" (1Peter 3:10,11)

Life is more of what we put into it than what we take out of it. We harvest what we have invested overtime in life. We cannot sow Orange, and harvest Apple. The Bible in James 4 answers the simple question: What is your life?

We are like a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Life is not an entitlement but a privilege we should not take for granted. How are you living your life? What seeds are you sowing daily?

A story was told of a man who had riches and barns of grain. It got to a point where he no longer had a place to store up his crops and wealth. So he said to himself; "I will break down the former store house and build a larger one". He didn't think of the future when he made that statement and little did he know that his soul was going back to its Owner that night. What a disaster!

Life is not about us but about our owner. We don't live for ourselves, we live for Him.

Now that his life has been taken, what will happen to the riches he stored up? He failed to lay up treasures for himself in heaven, but rather found pleasure in laying up treasures on earth. He did not show appreciation to God for all he had. He chose to hoard his riches and not invest it. He failed to reach out.
 God blesses us in order that we be a blessing where ever we find ourselves and also reach out even to those that are far away.

What is the pattern of your life?

Our key verse shows us how to pattern our lives in order that we be happy, that is, to love life and see good days. It is for us to keep our tongue from evil and our lips from speaking deceit; to turn from evil and do good; to seek peace and pursue it.

The world we live in today is full of evil and wickedness; that is why many persons are regretting their life, because they have failed to follow this pattern the Bible talks about. You see a jealous and envious person who suddenly kills the person he is jealous of because he is dissatisfied with his life. Many seek after their own interest rather than the interest of others. Even babies from their mothers womb are being taught the act of lieing by their parents who are experts. Since they have failed to follow the pattern in order to enjoy life and see good days, life becomes regrettable and they live a mediocre.

Dear, it is simple analogy to love good and hate evil. You cannot do evil in this world and not eat the share of your cake. You cannot go scot free for He who created the world is good and loves justice and righteousness. He repels evil and that is why when you do evil, you attract His wrought and life does not go well for you. If you know you want to remain and live long in this world you find yourself, then it's simple for you to follow the pattern that will make you enjoy your stay here on earth.

There is a future for every living being on earth. Like the story above, when we fail to give, we are short sighted and not thinking ahead. Every action we take has a spiritual implication, because life is more of the spiritual than the physical. We all know deep down what is expected of us in life; so let us act accordingly and not follow the impulses of the flesh.

 The flesh will tell you to take that persons money after all he will find another. Whereas your spirit says do not take his money for you will be doing him wrong. Your flesh tells you not to give alms to the beggar on the street after all another person will pass and give him money. Your spirit tells you to give and do not withhold from him who asks of you. Your flesh gingers you to act on your anger by shouting vehemently at the one who wronged you while your spirit tells you to calm down, talk things over with him to know why he did that and forgive him.

Many times, you tend to act based on the flesh because of how pressing the situation is at that moment and just to show that you are right. You do not only have to give in order for you to lay up treasures for yourself in heaven; but also, when we act based on the good within us, we also acknowledge the Lordship of Jesus Christ in us and thereby, lay treasures in heaven as we acknowledge through our actions that we are citizens of heaven.

Your life is a privilege given to you by God to enjoy and not to endure. 

When you live life based on the pattern God has laid out for you, you enjoy life to the fullest and are not taken by surprise when the time comes to transit to glory. You are confident in God and His Word. This is a secret to living happily and peacefully.

In all, God is indispensable in our life's journey; and with Him being in it, we are directed properly, have peace within us and so many other privileges we enjoy. His will becomes very easy for us to do.

You can begin a relationship now with the Lord Jesus Christ by saying this prayer:

 Lord Jesus Christ I acknowledge that I am a sinner, I believe in your death and resurrection. I ask you to forgive me my sins, I reject the devil and all his works and l welcome the Holy Spirit into my life. I declare today I am born again and I am a child of God in Jesus name .Amen .
If you just said that prayer I welcome you to God's family. Look for a Bible believing church where God's word is taught and fellowship there.
