There are two ways we can look during life’s journey. Look up and see the stars. Look down and see mud. We can look up in hope. We can look down in dispare. We can look up and do what Epicurus counseled: “Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.” We only live once on this earth. Why waste time looking at the depressing mud in life. Look up because your Redeemer is close.
