If Today Were Your Last Day on Earth . . .

If today turned out to be your last day on earth, did you spend it wisely?

Were you kind to others or so wrapped up in yourself that you didn’t even notice how you could have comforted someone in need of an encouraging word?

Wherever there is a human being there is an opportunity for kindness.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Did you make someone else’s life better? Reaching out to others through generosity of spirit is perhaps the greatest gift we can give to each other and to ourselves.

Do things for people not because of who they are or what they do in return, but because of who you are.
Rabbi Harold S. Kushner

Did you try to improve yourself in some small way or did you just veg out and waste time by mindlessly watching TV, reading junk novels or playing video games?

You must wish to consume yourself in your own flame: how could you wish to become new unless you had first become ashes!
Friedrich Nietzsche

Did you pause for a moment and take in the beauty of the world around you or did you allow all the moments of the day to roll by in an indistinguishable blur?

Where is the fountain that throws up these flowers in a ceaseless outbreak of ecstasy.
Rabindranath Tagore

Live each day in spirit as if it were your last, and you will be at peace no matter when that final day comes. No regrets, no unfulfilled wishes, no words left unspoken.

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalms 118:24

When your time on earth is done, all that will matter is how much love is in your heart. Why wait another minute to begin living that truth?

He who is filled with love is filled with God himself.
Saint Augustine

Phil’s eBook, The Logic of Living a Spiritual Life: Supporting a Life of Faith Through Logic and Reason, is now available for 99 cents on Amazon.

Order it at GodIsLogical.com.

In this eBook, you’ll find answers to questions like:
• What is the cornerstone of a spiritual life, and why?
• What is the secret to liberating yourself from other people’s judgments and expectations?
• Why is there an exception to “Everything happens for a reason”?


Those who worship logic instead of God are only half right. Not only is it logical to believe in God and to live a faith-based life, the existence of a loving, benevolent God that governs all creation is perhaps the only systematic worldview that explains every aspect of life.
