"I count all that part of my life
lost which I spent not in communion
with God, or in doing good."
"Only one life, 'twill soon be past,
Only what's done for Christ will last,
And when I am dying, how happy I'll be,
If the lamp of my life has been burned out for Thee."
"For if you want to save your own life,
you will lose it;
but if you lose your life for my sake,
you will find it."
(Matthew 16:25 GNT)
