Resurrected Living
"What are you going to do with your new resurrected life? This is the heroic question." Richard Rohr

It’s a Beautiful Day

To the majority of Americans, each day seems the same. We get up, go to work, come home, and then do it all over again. Life seems monotonous. Solomon, in the book of Ecclesiastes explains how it is easy to get caught up in the circle of life (Eccl. 1:3-9). Solomon describes how life can easily become boring, depressing, wearisome, and meaningless if we are not careful. Jesus, however, calls us to something different. He calls us to live an abundant life and take full advantage of every day (John 10:10).

When you have a small child at home, you begin to realize the significance of each day. A day in the life of a small child is quite different than the day of an average adult. With each day a small child learns something new or achieves another milestone. One day they are setting up and the next day they are learning to crawl. Each day is important. Each day is essential in the life of the child.

What would happen if we saw the importance in each day God has blessed us with? What if we, like small children, saw the beauty instead of the monotony in every day? How would our lives change? God has blessed our children with the ability to see things in a day that we do not see. We used to see the things they see, but we have spent too much time in a fallen world. We have gotten used to viewing our days through worldly eyes, instead of eyes of faith. It is time we remember that each day is not a burden, but a blessing from God.

“This is the day which the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it.”. (Psalm 118:24)
