Will you make a difference in 2022?

"Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom." —Psalm 90:12

 

Where are you in your life today? Are you in the morning of your life? Are you in the afternoon of your life? Or, are you in the evening of your life?

 

I know I’m getting toward the end of my race in life. I don’t know how many more years I will live or how many more years of ministry I will have. But I do know that I’m not in the beginning of it.

 

Those who are young will say, “I’m in the morning of my life.”But you never know when the Lord will call you home. No one is guaranteed a tomorrow. All we have is today, this moment, this hour!

 

That’s why we want to be ready to meet God. We need to realize that Jesus died on the cross for us, and we need to turn from our sins and ask Him to come into our lives. Then we will find the meaning and purpose of life that we’ve been seeking. Not only that, but we will have hope for the afterlife.

 

So what kind of difference is your life making? What kind of legacy are you leaving? Can you say to anyone, follow me and then show them or lead them to Jesus? My prayer is that you will live a life that is worth emulating in 2022.

 

Corrie ten Boom was a very godly woman who suffered horrible things during the Holocaust, including imprisonment in a concentration camp, and she lived to tell the story. She made this statement: “The measure of a life, after all, is not its duration, but its donation.”

 

Some think that success is a long life. Maybe success is a long life—if it is lived for the glory of God. But even if it’s a short life, if it’s lived for God’s glory, that is still a success. It is not the duration but the donation. Let’s see what we can donate to life in 2022.
