#Best or #Bless life?

Are you living your #bestlife or your #blesslife? What’s the difference?” We often see people’s ‘best life’ displayed on social media (e.g. I can’t believe how beautiful Jamaica’s beach is! I just bought a brand new car! hashtag #livingmybestlife.

There’s nothing wrong with celebrating a meaningful event. But what’s the real motive? Is it genuine, or is it a subtle way of showing off? A “humble brag?” I have yet to see a post on Social Media that says, I can’t pay my light bill! I can’t pay my mortgage!! I was diagnosed with a ________! Hashtag #livingmybestlife.

The difference between the two is trusting that regardless of how hard life gets, we are still blessed despite our trials, situation, and/or circumstance! Paul said in Philippians 4:11-12, “I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.”

The “living your best life” philosophy is nothing more than the old “power of positive thinking” lie repackaged to scratch the itching ears of the current generation. If we know Jesus Christ as our Savior, our best lives await us in heaven where we will spend eternity in joy and bliss, enjoying a life which is far better than the “best” we could have now.
