“the one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.” – galatians 6:8
my friend and former ‘boss’ (for lack of a better word, ha!), jon randles, taught me that everyone is either breathing life or breathing death. no in-betweens…it’s one or the other.
he said like birds of a feather, life breathers flock together, just like death breathers do too. in other words, if you’re looking for trouble, you can easily find it. and i think we’ve all had people in our lives at one point or another who just absolutely suck the life out of us. and we’ve also been those people too…let’s be honest. breathing death will wear you out.
on the other hand, how absolutely great is it when we are breathing life in community with others of like-mind?
tonight i had coffee with my friend tina. as described in a tweet earlier, it was filled with “satisfying laughter” and a “refreshed perspective.” i am so glad that i have tina…in a long list of others, that i share life with, who can breathe life into me, my choices, my fears, and my walk with Jesus. there’s nothing like it!
go get you a ‘tina’ and get some healing and love. in the mean time, here’s some life in the form of a pie chart, courtesy of my fav kelly bee. to all you melancholies (who adore charts and graphs)—you are WELCOME!
