Feb 18 - Fifty Years

"What we do in life...echoes in eternity."

-Maximus Decimus Meridius

Life is teaching me that whatever I do today will directly affect my future. Not only that - it will affect the future of others.

If I drink today, I will be hung over tomorrow. I will set in motion the domino effect that once ruled my life. My future family will suffer as a result.

If I do the right things today, (pray, work hard, help others, and seek God's favor), it will pay off tomorrow, the next day, a year from now, even 50 years from now. When I think about the gravity of my decisions, I'm much more likely to make the right choice. 

My decisions aren't really about me, they're about helping others - today, and in the long run.
