Well we made it. If the Mayans were right today is the end of the world. I seriously doubt this to be true, after all Jesus said “No one will know the day or the hour…” but here’s the thing. Just because the whole world does not end doesn’t mean it won’t end for some. The mortality rate in this world is nearly 100 percent. You might be thinking, “Wow uplifting post, Dave” but please hear me out. You see, the truth is I believe we should live each day as if it were our last. This doesn’t mean we live fatalistically, not should we live hedonistically. No, we should make the most of each opportunity, of each day. We should choose to live a life that matters. We should choose to face life optimistically. We should make the most of our lives. We should choose to invest time in the people we love and we should do it all to the glory of God.
Is this the last day? Most likely, no, but make the most of it. Make great art or make the day a work of art. Spend time with the people you love. Serve somebody. Make a difference. Start something exciting and new and in the midst of it all, praise the One whose birth we celebrate in just a few days, who came to give us a hope beyond this world.
Maybe the end of the world as we know it isn’t such a bad thing, especially if we are living to make a new and better world.
