“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.” – 2 Timothy 4:7-8 (NKJV)
We want to dedicate this post to our friend, brother, and partner, David Donald Olang, who went home to be with the Lord on Friday, April 2nd, 2021.
We all want to live a long life but long life is overrated. A well-lived life is what we all should be after. Jesus lived until 33 years, Martin Luther King Jr lived 39 years, Robert Kennedy lived 46 years, and our dear friend David Olang lived 51 years. Though their lives were short, they all lived a life well-lived. A life that we all should admire and aspire to live.
A life well-lived is the life that Jesus promised in John 10:10 when he said He has come, that we may have life and that we may have it more abundantly. It is the Abundant life, a life without regrets, a life of purpose and rigor. David lived such a life.
