“It’s not gonna matter…”

"It's not gonna matter if you have a few scars. It will matter if you didn't live." Rich Mullins

Christy and I saw Ragamuffin, the movie based on the life of Rich Mullins, this past weekend. Quite a bit of it is still rattling around in my brain. This quote was used in the film and it hasn’t left me since I heard it. It sounds like a challenge. A challenge to accept the gift that God has given us and live life in relentless pursuit of God.

Challenge accepted?

“So go out and live real good and I promise you’ll get beat up real bad. But, in a little while after you’re dead, you’ll be rotted away anyway. It’s not gonna matter if you have a few scars. It will matter if you didn’t live.”
