Life is Better When . . .

Most people are looking for something in life that will make their life better – a better job; a nicer house; more money etc. The basic problem is that too often they’re looking for the wrong things in the wrong places. For the Christian, life is better when you begin looking for the right things (followed by right actions) in the right place. The quality of our lives does not depend on the amount of things that we have (Luke 12:19) but on the way we choose to live our lives.

With that thought in mind, here are 10 ways that you can make your life better.

Life is better when . . .

you live a life of Forgiveness instead of a life of Bitterness (Matthew 6:12 & 14)

you live a life of Giving instead of a life of Miserliness (2 Corinthians 8)

you live a life of Generosity instead of a life of Greed (Acts 20:35, Luke 6:38)

you live a life of Honesty instead of a life of Lies (1 Peter 3:10-12)

you live a life of Purity instead of a life of Immorality (Matthew 5:8, 1 Corinthians 6:18)

you live a life of Serving instead of a life of Taking (1 Peter 4:11)

you live a life of Sacrifice instead of a life of Selfishness (Romans 12:1)

you live a life of Order instead of a life of Turmoil (1 Corinthians 14:40)

you live a life of Calm instead of a life of Chaos (Isaiah 26:3, Matthew 5:9)

you live a life of Humility instead of a life of Pride (Luke 14:11, James 4:6)

You get the idea. Life is always better when we attempt to live it God’s way whether that makes sense to us or not; whether it’s easy or not; whether it will benefit us or hurt us in the short term; no matter what anyone else is doing.

What would you can add to this list that would make your life better if you began to do things God’s way?
