One of my favorite authors is John Piper. He tells it like it is. He has a book, that I would encourage you to read and titled "Don't waste your life". And in this particular book, John tells the story of a young lady who was killed tragically on the mission field, in the prime of her life, and people saying, what a wasted life.
John comes back and says, "No, that was not a wasted life. That was a life well invested for the kingdom of God". And then he goes on to tell the story of someone he read about in Reader's Digest years ago, who retired from up north moved to Florida, and spent the rest of their life collecting seashells. He says, "Can you imagine that person standing before God and said, "Jesus, look at my collection of seashells", according to John Piper, that is a wasted life.
God has a purpose for your life. Don't waste your life.
