Life Is Not a Game.
When I was growing up we had a board game called "Life".
This game was about getting a job, making money, and buying cars and houses.
No wonder we sang along to "Is that all there is?"
Life is not about accumulating money and possessions.
Life is about love.
And people who turn to alcohol and drugs are doing so because they don't experience enough love in their lives.
When Jesus says to love God, our neighbor, and our enemies he is not merely obeying a commandment, he is teaching us the very essence of life.
Love is an essential, like food or water.
We cannot live without it.
And this is what you will find in a relationship with God.
