I never thought I’d find inspiration for life from a beer ad. As a non-partaker myself, I tend to make fun of the “drink this and you’ll be awesome” message the marketing communicates. Well today I found my way to The Most Interesting Man on Earth’s Wikipedia page via my little brother’s Facebook page. In the commercials, this guy leads a life similar to the one Chuck Norris leads in the popular joke series. One stood out to me:
“It’s never too early to start beefing up your obituary.”
At first I took it as humor but then I figured out what it meant… If all your obituary reads is where you were born and when you died, you probably never lived.
Later on I saw another on a Twitter feed attributed to him,
“I live by the motto: Safety third.”
It took me back to a previous post of mine about risk and safety. I’m still having trouble shaking my fears and my tendency to think of safety first.
But of course, Jesus said He came to give us abundant life, not safety.
