In Titus 2:2, God tells older men to make a choice: â€śYou can invest your life, or waste your lifeâ€”it's up to you!â€ť God's desire for you is that you would live a life that testifies that the Lord is goodâ€”good enough to obey completely, to trust implicitly, to follow faithfully, and to intentionally sacrifice my comfort, my security, and my convenience for His Cause! God has an eternal purpose for you to accomplish regardless of the stage of life you find yourself in. A purpose that is greater than the 'American dream', greater than retirement, and will be of eternal value. God has given you a certain and limited amount of a commodity-the commodity of time. When your share runs out-its done. You can't get any more. Are you making the most of it? What percentage of the last week that you lived benefited the kingdom of God? That is the percentage that will last for all eternity! May God bless you with a life that is lived wholly for Him!
Truth Extradinaire I cannot tell you the extent to which your message made me "sick" of my SELF. It gets in the way of so many things of this fallen world contending for man's affections.

Your message publicized my life and struggles to "CONSIDER HIM in all things.
Thank you. And may our great God and Saviour be pleased with the responses of each hearer to walk worthy of His calling in Christ Jesus.
34 year old The idea of little pockets of unmortified sin as a deadly spiritual pathogen made me cringe. Thanks for the reminder. I appreciate the warnings, and your real world examples.
