Slogan that guides our lives?
Thought of the day:
Living in a world of desideratum and slogans that define the mentality of the individual, of the groups or of the society itself, the natural question that should interest us today is outlined around the authentic Christian and his practical mentality.
So how should we be, those who have known the crucified Christ? Or, what should the world around us see in us and what is the slogan that guides our lives?
‘We,’ said the Apostle Paul, ‘if we live, we live for the Lord; And if we die, we die for the Lord. So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. ” —Romans 14: 8
In this simple sentence is found in fact the whole mystery of man’s existence on this earth, of his abilities and at the same time of the driving force that propels his life.
The secret that God himself wants to pass on to all lies in a completely different angle of wisdom than it would seem at first sight, carrying with it a totally different mentality than that which we ordinary people are accustomed to put into The practice of daily life – where we are always looking for fulfillment and happiness in the moments of the moment.
The great mystery lies in the fact that somewhere, beyond space and time, beyond reality itself but closer than our own thoughts, lies eternity – an eternal life and much more complex than what we have here and now.
So if you want to become truly great, aim for this mentality, because preparing to be a real man in the world of eternity from now on, you will surely be a great man down here, on the rough and dark earth of sin.
But today you choose the status of a wise man; Aim high, far to eternity, filling your mind with the mentality of Christ!
You will thus surely become a noble man even down here, in this world of shadows, where you will let your belonging to heaven and eternity be felt in every word and deed.
