We measure life in 24 hour increments. No matter how many times we attempt to step back and look at the big picture of our life, every morning the alarm clock tells us it’s time to check back into the reality of the moment and face the day. And at the end of each day we get about 6-8 hours of sleep to prepare for the next one. Before we know it a year has passed and we wonder, "Did 8760 hours really just happen?"

The pursuit of a better life isn’t about the changes we make as much as the changes that happen when we allow God to change us. All of us are going to be tomorrow what we are becoming today and God wants to usher those changes in our lives right now.

I think Micah was right on when he wrote to God’s people about how to live without regret right now.

“But he's already made it plain how to live, what to do, what God is looking for in men and women. It's quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbor, be compassionate and loyal in your love, And don't take yourself too seriously— take God seriously.” – Micah 6:8 (The Message)

It’s not that complicated but we have to start now before another 24 hours passes us by. Are you ready to take God seriously?
