Fill in the blanks–
- live a long and meaningful life
- die anyway
Cynics, skeptics, and negative people like to dwell on answer 2. They love to tell people that all their efforts to be healthy and their self-discipline are pointless wastes of time.
The stories still circle around and around about the person who “they say” smoked like a chimney, drank a lot of booze and lived to 100 years old.
My choice is answer 1, to live a long and meaningful life. Answer 2 is inevitable for every person (unless the LORD returns first and gets us off this planet).
I recently said, “Life is short, why make it miserable too?”
So stick to your discipline and healthy habits. It is worth the effort in order to have a wonderful life full of rich and treasured memories.
“This is the day the LORD has made, and I will rejoice and be glad in it.”
