Another day, another dollar

I've no idea why I had this post, but it has something to do with making money. A colleague at work was wondering about whether he is living. Not in terms of breathing, rather as far as life is concerned. I mean, you get into the office, bombarded with mails, meetings and overdue reports and project assignments. At home, you are thinking of work. Out with your friends, whether the rave, pub or after church, you discuss work. Then what?

I figure if you aren't a shareholder in the company you work for, then that kind of effort will send you to the grave faster than a stroll through a lion pride in the Serengeti. My opinion, is get a life. Live for something that's greater than you, find a cause to put your effort in. Maybe serve as a volunteer for an organization, church or otherwise that helps people get by in life, meeting basic needs such as food, shelter, medical care, counselling and the like. You get my drift, sharing in these people's lives reminds you to appreciate the life you have and the job you slave for. It makes life worth living. Check this site out for another opinion.

Life and work without love and concern for others isn't worth it. But it's a conscious decision, because letting life drive you along will end up blinding you from the world that desperately needs you to fulfil your destiny, which is something everyone should know about. Dream big and share it with others that need to know so that they can dream and share, then we can live life that is truly life. No greater love than this; a man lays down his life for his friends - John 15: 13.
