God’s Abundance: Daily Living (#918)
We’ll continue our series on God’s abundance today with Daily Living.  Last time we talked about Eternal Life, which is great. But today we’ll get into to Daily Living, our life on Earth, here.  There are those in Christianity that focus so much on eternal life and the return to the Lord, that they forget about living every day.  And of course there are people that go the other way, where people focus so much on daily living that they forget that the Lord is coming back.   We try to do both.   And as you may have heard me say before, many people like to talk about the joy of eternal life and the return of the Lord.   What was the statement that people used to use?  I can’t remember, but what tried and I came up with was that it is not just eternal life and the return of the Lord, but it is mirth on the Earth from your rebirth.  It is not exactly Biblical, but it worked.   And this was a play on the other phrase on eternal life that I can’t remember right now.  But in any rate, it is mirth on the Earth from your rebirth —  we want to enjoy life every day.  And then have the return of the Lord to look forward to.  So in a day where we are having a super day, we’re just loving life; we just say, this is great and it gets even better when the Lord returns.  On a day when everything is not the way we want it and we are not at all happy with it, then we remember: I’m going to get through this and then the Lord is going to return.  It will be great; either way will be great.  So today is about mirth on the Earth from your rebirth.  We’ll start in Deuteronomy chapter 32…
