Mrs. Susan Boe continues to teach me many things. One very important lesson included this train of thought. Your lifestyle is going to be determined by many things... but what things? In her book, Total Health, she has a picture of someone climbing the stairs of "Lifestyle" Each stair supports the one above it... on the top stands your habits. Your habits are determined by your behavior; your behavior by your choices; your choices by your values. In essence, it all comes back to your foundation. What will you base your lifestyle off? I would propose that the answer to that is base it on the Gospel. If not that, then what?
If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men.I think it's worth it. Let's give it a shot. Nothing left to lose? Isn't that what they say?
1 Corinthians 15:19
Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
1 Corinthians 15:58
