Useful Years on Earth

When you are born, you do not know how to do anything. You cannot walk, talk or read. You need to be taught how to do all of these things. You need to be taught how to live your life. You need advice from people who have lived long enough to know how to live their life successfully.

Your useful years could be described as, "The time that you spend glorifying God on earth and making an impact for the kingdom, but how do you know how many years that is? " The best way to find out, is to check your heart. If you are struggling with the pain of life and wearing the scars of sin on your back, I believe it is time to get rid of the things that are weighing you down and letting you be light.

I believe that our useful years on earth should be compared to our bank account. The more spiritual funds we have stored up in heaven, the more of an impact we can make on the earth.

There once was an old man who had lived to be 80 years old. He worked hard his entire life and had been faithful to God. One day, he fell under the weight of age and was no longer able to care for himself. His children decided to put him in a home where he could receive around-the-clock care.

He was very lonely, however, and soon fell ill. In the midst of all of his sadness, one of his children visited him and inquired about his health. "You asked me how I was doing," he said. "But you're treating me like I'm already dead. So what is the point of my being here? Just for the money?"

When the man's children would come to visit, one would always bring a newspaper with them. They would bring a different newspaper each time. The old man noticed this and said to them, "I've been reading these papers for quite some time now, but I can't read very well anymore and I'd like to know what news is important enough for me to read from this day forward."

The daughter said, "Actually, I've been praying every day that you'll regain your eyesight so that you can read again." He then replied to her by saying that perhaps God will listen to her prayer because she had been praying every day without fail.

"If you want to live a long life of impact and useful deeds, keep your feet firmly planted on the ground, and never lose sight of who you are and where you came from. Avoid living in a dream world. Those who live in the past will never be happy.

"Remember, no matter how far you travel, you can never leave your body behind. You take them with you everywhere you go."

"Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world."

"Don't worry about failures, worry about the chances you miss when you don't even try."

"The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now."

"I don't want to achieve immortality through my work; I want to achieve it through not dying."

"What do we live for? We long to feel useful, to be needed, to matter."

"The best thing about the future is that it comes only one day at a time."

"Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it's called the present."

"It's not enough to have talent. You have to have a talent for your talent, whatever it is."

"The things that hurt, instruct."

"You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore."

"Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned or worn. It is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, joy and gratitude.

"So, my dear friends, as you celebrate your Useful years on earth, begin by thinking about these things. Then you will be able to live a good life."

With advancements in science and technology we are living longer than ever before. But how do we live these longer lives? How can we maximize our usefulness years on earth in such a way that glorifies God?

So, as an average human being lives 77.5 years. What do we mean by 'useful years'? Your useful years are the years you spend glorifying God, rather than yourself. Rather than living for yourself, living for something bigger. For a higher purpose - because that's where and how you will find real joy in life.
