Thirty Three Years
I was reading in Mark today about the Lord's crucifixion. And then it hit me again - Jesus lived the most significant life ever lived and yet he only lived to 33. All around we see everyone trying to extend their days. Diets, exercise, fountains of youth, it seems like everyone is trying to live as long as they can rather than to live as meaningfully as they can. There's nothing wrong with living a long full life, but maybe my focus should be on meaning rather than on distance. What have been the most meaningful days in your life? What would you consider significant?
