Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

Many of us live based upon what we know.  If we didn't "know it" we may live differently.

"Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near.  Even so when you see these things happening, you now that it is near, right at the door."
                                                         - Mark 13:28,29
Mark 13 is the great chapter of the End Times; repeated insights and invitations to be ready for the fulfillment.  It's a caution, a warning.  But Jesus ends it here: Know.  "I've told you these things."  Knowing it, wouldn't it prepare us to live accordingly, or does it make us bored, complacent?
If you knew today that this was the last day of history, how would you live it?  Maybe we live all our days in light of this "knowing."
