What is a wasted life?
...Is it a life without social position?
...Is it a life without recognition?
...Is it a life without change?
...Is it a life without increase or gain?
...Is it a life without connection?
...Is it a life without direction?

A wasted lifeÖ
...Is a life lived without walking with our Savior.
...Is a life lived without knowing Godís unfailing favor.
...Is a life lived without feeling Godís unmerited grace.
...Is a life lived without daily seeking His perfect face.
...Is a life lived without Godís personal vision.
...Is a life lived without His supply of provision.

A truly wasted life is a life without knowing God.

Jeremiah 9:23-24
23 This is what the LORD says: "Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom or the strong man boast of his strength or the rich man boast of his riches,
24 But let him who boasts boast about this: that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight," declares the LORD.

Very true--thanks for sharing this.

I couldn't find a way to make this fit the topic.

It's sad how many wated lives there are, isn't it?

I couldn't see the "Hot and Cold" in this, but your message was plain and clear.
Thank you for writing this.

At least I wrote about faith in God which is almost rare on this website considering the winners dont mention God in any way, shape, or form. I must say at least I remember the foundation of why I write and what I am to write about which is "God"

You are right that it had nothing to do with the subject but with your repuation for frivilous writing that misses the foundation I guess I thought it really did not matter. I guess your slightly distorted or else I am because I thought this was about faith writing.
