[Make] the most of every opportunity.
If you live an average lifespan, you will have been granted over 2 billion seconds on Earth. You are a billionaire! Use the time wisely.
By the time we reach junior high, we’ve mastered the nasty put-down. Making yourself feel big by making someone else feel small takes so little skill a 12-year-old can do it.
Tone down the cynicism. Sure, there is a lot of rottenness in the world. But, the other side of the coin is that there are many wonderful people in your space.
Don’t squander your 2-billion-seconds-fortune in bitterness. No matter how bad things seem, you have something to be grateful for. Use the time God has granted you being positive and thankful.
God gives you the freedom to spend
his gift of time however you choose.
