day no. 13,017: living the good life looks a lot like dying

Proverbs 8:35-36

35 For the one who finds me finds life
and obtains favor from the Lord,
36 but the one who misses me harms himself;
all who hate me love death.”
The wisdom of God is foolishness to the world.
Those who truly love life seek the Lord.
The world would say that they are living it up and those who love the Lord are wasting away their opportunities to truly live.
The world is wrong.
The one who finds wisdom, finds life and favor from the Lord: the Creator, Provider and Sustainer of all life.
The one who misses this, misses everything and actually injures themselves.
They stumble in the dark and stub their toes and bang their foreheads on cabinets because they refuse to walk in the light.
Rather than loving life, they prove in their rebellion that they hate life and love death.
They prefer to live a life of eternal death while yet alive.
Eternal life is not something you enter into when you die, it is something you experience by knowing the eternal God through faith in the One He sent, Jesus Christ, His Son.
Jesus is the only way, the only truth and the only LIFE.
If you reject Him, you embrace death.
Don’t be besties with death by sacrificing your life to idolatry.
Don’t miss this!
Receive Him and so be received by Him.
