Live Like Your Dying

Have you noticed that the radio has a way of playing the same songs over and over again until you actually like songs you never planned on liking? This happened to me with a song titled, "Live Like Your Dying." Have you heard it? If not, you need to listen to it and let the words sink in. (Below are the words...) The song is a reminder that everyday we are working till the end of our lives. In other words... you and I will die one day. Considering this, how would you live your life differently if you had this perspective? -Would you love more?
-Would you hate less? -Would you spend more time with the people you love?
-Would you spend less time working? "Sometimes we fall down and can’t get back up We’re hiding behind skin that’s too tough How come we don’t say I love you enough Till it’s to late, it’s not too late Our hearts are hungry for a food that won’t come We could make a feast from these crumbs And we’re all staring down the barrel of a gun So if your life flashed before you What would you wish you would’ve done Yeah… gotta start Lookin at the hand of the time we’ve been given here This is all we got and we gotta start pickin it Every second counts on a clock that’s tickin’Gotta live like we’re dying We only got86 400 seconds in a day to Turn it all around or throw it all away We gotta tell ‘em that we love ‘em While we got the chance to say Gotta live like we’re dying And if your plane fell out of the skies Who would you call with your last goodbyes Should be so careful who we live out our lives So when we long for absolution There’ll no one on the line..."

-You tell man to return to what he was; you change him back to dust. A thousand years to you are like one day; they are like yesterday, already gone, like a short hour in the night. (Psalm 90)
