One day I found myself having a conversation with someone who told me life was too short, that they enjoyed all the pleasures offered to them, and that I should loosen up a little. Although we should enjoy life, this should be done prudently. We mustn’t lose focus as to why we are really here; to share the gospel. Bottom line, a few minutes or hours of any kind of pleasure are not worth an eternity of suffering.
For I want you to understand what really matters, so that you may live pure and blameless lives until the day of Christ’s return. (Philippians 1:10 NLT)
