I was on the treadmill the other evening.
On the TV was Sylvester Stallone in the movie, Rambo.
Ah, some nice welcome action to take my mind off the exercise.
Some doctors and missionaries are trying to make their way to to Burma to help the helpless victims being slaughtered by the military warlord and his henchmen.
Stallone knows the danger in going there, and at first, he ties to discourage them from going.
The beautiful and sincere women in the group convinces him to take them there…to try to make a difference in these people’s lives who are suffering.
Stallone takes to the lesson and incorporates it into his inner persona.
And later he says:
“Live for something
Die for nothing!“
I thought this was a really good philosophy.
THINK ABOUT IT:
– We can choose to make our lives meaningful and impactful or to hide in the closet or under the bed and really accomplish nothing.
Our lives are a gift, given to us to do something good with–it’s a sin to waste that gift and not do everything we can to be a good influence, help others, and make this a better world.
