YOLO

yolo-oxford-english-dictionaryThe Oxford English Dictionary recently added 197 new words that have become a part of our English vocabulary.

One of those words is “YOLO”, which stands for “you only live once”. This phrase expresses the view that one should make the most of the present moment without worrying about the future, and often is used as an excuse for engaging in reckless or impulsive behavior.

It is true that we only have one live to live here in this world. The Bible urges us to make the best of our lives, using our God-given talents and opportunities to make a difference for the cause of Christ. If some think that living our lives in an extreme fashion for Jesus is reckless, then so be it.

“To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me.”—Colossians 1:29.

YOLO.
