Worthy To Die For

“Indeed, only with difficulty does one die for a just person, though perhaps for a good person one may even find courage to die” ~ Romans 5:7.

Why do we fear death? Undoubtedly, there is something frightening about “running out of time.” If we die, we can no longer accomplish anything we set out to do. It is a finality of life that closes the doors on future prospects.

We are called to lay down our lives for goodness, and called every day.

Embracing death, in a sense, is part of our lives. My husband dies to himself every day he goes to work and surrenders his time. I die to myself every day I care for my children instead of doing 100 other things. We die to ourselves a little bit when we take an unexpected phone call from a friend in need. Any sacrifice of ourselves, especially our time, is a small death.

I feel like people today are chronically unfulfilled. We complain about our jobs, complain about our finances, complain about our free time. Yet, fulfilled people find courage to die to themselves and sacrifice for the good of others. Going to work is a lot easier when you have a family to provide for. Handling chaos at home is part of life when you choose to be fulfilled.

What is worthy to die for?

If you are miserable in your work, in your relationship, or in any area of your life, is it worthy to die for? Are you serving a good cause? Or even a just cause? What are you spending your life on that is leaving you empty? What could you be spending your life on to be fulfilled?
