  • Live Until You Die, Die Until You Live

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Mar 23, 2009
    based on 15 ratings

There’s a strong compulsion in us to extract all the value and the vitality we can get out from more

    When people see us “make allowance for each other’s faults and forgive the person who offends {us}” (Colossians 3:13) then and only then will they conclude we are followers of Jesus.

    Wakeup call at our house – a ritual! First call – “Time to get up and get ready.” Fifteen minutes later – “Come on get out of bed! We have to go soon!” Then in frustration and desperation Glenys pulls the blankets back and hollers, “DALE, it’s time to get up! We leave in an hour!” You thought more
