Get a Life

My wife and I were briskly walking along our local promenade, our afternoon exercise, when a 35 plus woman cyclist stopped to answer her mobile phone call. As we passed Shirley overheard her saying, “Don’t be so boring, get a life.” I wondered whether she was trying to motivate her husband, or her partner, or a friend. Curiosity would love to know, and what sort of relationship existed. 

But this is the contemporary advice to people who are thought to continue in the same old rut – “get a life.” As Christians we deplore the sentiments that go with such a statement, but as Christians, we could very well properly use it, in order to tell men and women, boys and girls, to get the only life. A life, that is in Christ Jesus, who is the way, the truth and the life, abundant life, eternal life that is a blessing and not boring. This is a relationship of true love with the One who loved us and gave Himself for us.
