I understand what you mean- the idea of living today as if it's your last. And doing the very best with the time you have instead of wasting it in thinking that there will always be another day or another chance.
I think that all of us, to a degree, are aware that death can come at any time, whether it's in a car collision out of nowhere or finding out that we have a medical condition that will take our lives. But our tendencies- whether to seize the moments or to put things off and take them for granted- they don't seem to be that much affected by possibilities. It's only when we get the last moment "news" that we actually take it seriously. So even for people who believe that 2012 MIGHT be the end, many of them wouldn't do anything about it until they see the impending doom rocketing across the sky.
And too, there are people who would live those last moments in the worst ways. Like the kid who decides to go on a shooting rampage because he is intending to die as well. Or people who would take their last days as an excuse to disregard all the "rules" that society has wanted them to live under. I'm afraid that living like the end is coming would bring out not only some of the best in people, but also some of the very worst.
What would you do? Quit your job, put every expense on a credit card, take the family away for a while, stop paying rent, etc. Then what. If the world does not end you will be up to your eyeballs in problems and you family will be homeless.
You should live like the world is going to end but that life should be a reasonable moderation of fulfilling your responsibilities, spending time with the important people in your life, saying the things you 'should' have said long ago, etc. DO THAT NOW regardless of when the world ends because you may end tomorrow either way.
Because God WILL save us
cuz some people are seriosly stupid.
Haha, funny....haha...because some people will loose everything by that time, if unfortunately world wouldn't end.
Yup.. we can end it, and restart again if we are alive.. So lets all just break free of worries and live it out there.
You don't vote do you.
well, voting is serious to think.
