The YOLO Mindset
YOLO has been a popular saying among our youth. I recently heard on the radio that "YOLO" was ranked #1 . . .
...in a list of the 'Top 10 Most Annoying Slang Words'. For those of you unfamiliar with this slang word/acronym, it simply means: You Only Live Once. Basically the premise behind the "YOLO" mindset is an attitude of: "If it feels good just do it", or "who cares, why not".
So, I would say, "Since you only live once, so let's go for it"! Which isn't necessarily a bad modus operandi. Now, hear me out . . . It's true, we only live once, so why wouldn't we go for it? By "going for it" I mean to live in a way that is pleasing to The Lord by truly being a difference maker.
Live in a way each day as to make a difference for your life and for others in eternity. In the BIG things and the little things . . . in everything! We want to challenge you to DEFINITELY live with the YOLO mentality, but with a Godly mission and purpose. Just be a Blessing!
I saw a t-shirt once that said "YOLO, but what will happen After you Die?" Hmmm, there's some food for thought and some purpose for our mission.
"And as it is appointed to men once to die, but after this the judgement: So Christ was offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation." (Hebrews 9:27-28)
I recently posted on our Team Gage facebook page:
We all have a limited amount of time with which to honor God. What if today, we started living and "doing" with the mindset of this, "Everything I do today is somehow connected to life in eternity, so I'm going to do it well, praying it's pleasing to Him."
Colossians 3:17 tells us:
"And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him."
