I have always loved the idea that we should live with an intensity as though He was coming back today, but do the work we would do for him if He weren’t coming back for a thousand years! When he returns he should find us eating and drinking, studying, saving, serving the community, marrying, raising children, exercising, building a business, vacationing, working at church or doing a thousand other things that are good, right, and appropriate, but doing them all for His sake, for the love of God and our neighbor! That’s how we stay ready: “So, whether you eat or drink, whatever you do, do all to the glory of God”
