What is life? What defines it?

Even the dictionary can’t describe it.

If you had to define it, what would you see?

If it was left up to me, this is what it’d be:

Life is more than writing and reading a book,

More than eating and learning how to cook,

It is more than watching movies and having fun,

More than buying merchandise by the ton,

Life is more than science, math, and school.

It is more than impressing people and being called “cool.”

If that was all life was, I’d call my life useless,

And the best things I did, worthless.

Living would not even be worthwhile,

If it were only having a money pile.

Is life living for your family or your friend?

No, life is living for the One who has no end.

Life is loving Him who first loved you,

And serving Him in all you do.

Immeasurable joy, immeasurable love,

Are gifts from our Father above.

Sacrificing for others, being called His,

This, my friend, is what life is.
