Amber Riebe's song "Life Unwasted" gives us the way to life a life that matters.
A sweeter love
my heart had never tasted and
Along with Your forgiveness
Came the opportunity to
Live life un-wasted.
Now I'm living this life un-wasted and true.
I'll spend the rest of my life living un-wasted for You.
Life Unwasted by Amber Riebe
In its most fundamental sense, gentleness traces its deepest root to a thoroughly, theological word: "mercy."
The Bible has one word that expresses mercy beautifully: the Hebrew word hesed. This word expresses covenant loyalty, a love characterized by solid fidelity. No matter what people have done throughout the ages God faithfully loves His people.
When I think of God's mercy to me and mine, I can only think of being merciful to others. In this flow of love is the reward of life fulfilled; unwasted.
May we celebrate this sabbath and rejoice that we live lives unwasted!!!
