Re:Verse passage – James 4:13-17 (day seven) 

Instead, you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that.” vs 15

In 2012, an acronym caught fire across social media and became one of the most popular words of a generation.”YOLO” (You Only Live Once) became the war cry of college and high school students as they sought adrenaline thrills and social media recognition through acts that most adults would define as sheer stupidity.

What young people saw in “YOLO” was an opportunity to live out their vanity using the excuse that this life is short. What was missed in “YOLO” was an understanding that this life, albeit short, is bigger than oneself. The truth is, we do only live once, and we should live each day like it is the last… not just for ourselves but for everyone! How would your life change if you knew that you were promised tomorrow, but your neighbor was not? Do not miss an opportunity to be the Christ that your neighbor needs today, because you are waiting on your tomorrow.
