This is a huge essence of life, making the most of the dash.
The dash is such a small amount of time in relation to all of eternity, which our souls were built for. Though it is just a dash, it is NOW and it affects forever.
Paul, the Apostle to the gentiles (if you are of Jewish decent, that includes you), spoke eloquently to the Greeks here:
The Greeks were great philosophers and Paul spoke to them in such a noteworthy way. It was like they fairly well understood nature and creation, but had little to no clue regarding the Creator.
In our modern society, many people have a similar, they know a lot of specialized knowledge, access to the AI and awesome stores of knowledge yet are so lost in all the data and blue screens.
As we come to know God, we can learn about Him as the Greeks from creation but most importantly, we have the Holy Bible as our reference.
For my relationship with God, it started here:
The bottom line is:
We make the most of the dash as we live and move and have our being in God by loving Him and others around us in a manner that maximizes our time, talent and treasure that glorifies God. The kind of living leaves a bright legacy!
