I know that this discussion has probably been shared quite a few times already, but I just wanted to bring it back up to attention. Today as I sat down and read the Bible, I read in Luke, about how someone stored up earthly treasures for themselves, but dies before he is able to use them. Life is short; enjoy it! That doesn't mean that you waste all your time trying to earn as much money as possible; it simply means to enjoy it. For most people, working isn't fun. So, don't try to over work. A Ferrari or Titan watch is not essential to enjoy life...Share your thoughts.

The most interesting topic that people wanted to talked about is about life. Our life is the most precious gift that God given to us, for us to live and enjoy. Many people nowadays, they treasures their selves with material possessions. This possessions in life cannot be brought until the end of time. If everything disappear and also the materials will be lost. Another thing is love. Love is another precious gift that God also given to us. Love is the most powerful value that all human being have. If there were trials and problems encountered by both individuals. Sometimes what happened is that when our love is lost, even our life is done. Actually, this trials and problems which we called fire of life is part of our lives, for us to overcome or embrace them. Life is so very short that in any second it can be get from us. So enjoy your life to the fullest, do all the things in the best and good way.

definitely you are right, life is too short for being workaholic. We should spent our part of our life in different things that make us happy or to let someone happy. I always read a bible and it feels good, and it is better to spent our time sometimes in the good places that had made. I can be spent my times with my family and friends. God had prepared many resources on earth for you and a knowledge so use it wisely.

Hi Jrjohn and welcome. It just goes to show you even back in the time during the Bible days there were people thinking their treasures were everything in life. They just didn't get it there are more important things in life than material things and yet even to this day people are like this. I also think if we are blessed with more than others we should always share and help those in need.

I agree, the important thing is that you are loved, you are with the people you love, you are happy and it does not matter what you have or don't have its just that whatever you think you d have in life, you appreciate it and you love your life and is living life to the fullest, according to what God wants us to have.

Yes , life is short then let us make the most of it. Let us live each day as if it is our last day. Let us touch others life . Let us be contented with what we have because we'll never enjoy life if we will be craving for more and more . Life is short why waste it doing meaningless things , why not live a legacy ? It is beautiful to die leaving a legacy .

one of my friends, who is a civil servant,has higher income and two days' rest one week,sitting in his office every workday.someday he told me that he admired those rich merchants .cos my friend thought that the merchants could buy anything they wanted as long as they could afford,and they did't have to see bosses' faces due to there were no bosses.i felt a little funny about his words.i told him maybe the merchants were asmiring you.he was laughing loudly. yes,life is short,spending your everyday well ,that is not easy.cherish what you have and enjoy it,after all,too greedy is not good.

yes, time is always running we should use it wisely and enjoy, I remember the cartoon movie "UP" that there's a couple who dream of traveling and save money all the time but it didn't gotten their dreams since the woman got sick if they had started traveling than giving so much time to save money it gotten true of their dreams

From a lot of news of earth's last days, I also came to realize I must like it always the last day on earth. It feels good not to have worries but it is not so me not to prepare for tomorrow. As a mother, I do have to plan all the time. Mothers are the busiest people in the world so if I forget to think of what meal should I prepare for tomorrow, I feel devastated. Now I am trying to do things on the day. Not very much cramming but at least I don't have to stay late at night just making a list of things to do tomorrow. Live your life as must as you can, you only have one. Good weekend everyone! ;)

Reading the Bible is a great pass time! I agree, money and fancy things are not the necessities in life, but to have fun and enjoy life. Enjoy what life offers, not its material things. Sure, some material things like a car and such are necessary but it doesn't have to be the hottest thing on the market.

Hello jrjohn. I agree that life is short, but also life is delicate. While we are working hard to make enough money for our daily necessities, we are supposed to be alert of our health conditions--work within our power or energy. To overwork is no good for our health. Also we need to live a light-hearted life. With a good mood can we enjoy more of our limited life. Thanks for the discussion. Have a good life.

I agree that life is shrt. And joy must come from being and not from having. Money and earthly treasures are not of life. They only hinder growth and the eal posibilities that life is giving us.
