Pursue and find LIFE (Proverbs 21:21)

"Whoever pursues righteousness and kindness
will find life, righteousness, and honor." - Proverbs 21:21

Imagine if we knew what it took to find life?

Today I shared with a taxi driver for almost a half an hour. Asking him what he believed and where he found his hope. He really has no hope. Completely hopeless in his unbelief and it lead to a truly interesting discussion.

What is life without Jesus? I'm so shocked how old I was before I found out just how much better it is when you know your creator and love Him. I always knew God was someone (kind of a big deal), I even know He was worth following. But no one told me I wouldn't experience joy until I submitted to His will. Or more importantly, simply looked to Him for guidance. Direction, life, joy.

Now I purse righteousness. I explained to the taxi driver that I no longer desire to be kind because my "good" must outweigh my "bad," but rather because of the great love I've experienced. I pursue being kindness because of He who was first kind to me.

Funny how sharing these truths can really solidify them in my heart.

Lord I want to seek righteousness and kindness (not less sin and earlier wake up times). I want to find LIFE, righteousness, honor.

I've tasted it, and I know it's there, only at Your hand. Have mercy on me. Help me to pursue what is right so I can find what is worthwhile.
