Unless We Believe in Reincarnation, we will have to agree, You Only Live Once. As it is Written “Every Human being is appointed to die Once”
Life is fickle, even the greatest king to live attested “there is nothing good for man under the sun except to eat and to drink and to be merry”.
The Premises of YOLO is not necessarily Unscriptural. Man, however has a track record of abusing everything he lays his hands on. Like, “Hitting Speed limit on the highway tonight because #YOLO”.
With YOLO, actions which would have brought disapproval are now being justified. This acronym makes people live for the Present, denying the place Consequences while relishing the idea of “No Regrets”
Recklessness and Non-chalancy is the song of YOLO cheerleaders who Overlook the Actions of the present and it’s consequences in the future.
Living Once does not account for Living without Wisdom and common sense.
You Only Live Once does not mean You Only Live today. Your Once In-time Life is not just today, but tomorrow and the next and the next. “So if you know of an opportunity to do the right thing today, yet you refrain from doing it, you’re guilty of sin.”
We must therefore, develop a Relationship with the One Who Can “Help us to remember that our days are numbered and help us to interpret our lives correctly.”
For this life We Live Once, Entails not just the Present but also our Future, Here on Earth and the World to come.
