Danger of undervaluing life.

 "I am not afraid that I shall exaggerate the value and significance of life, but that I shall not be up to the occasion which it is. I shall be sorry to remember that I was there, but noticed nothing remarkable, -- not so much as a prince in disguise; lived in the golden age a hired man; visited Olympus even, but fell asleep after dinner, and did not hear the conversation of the gods." Thoreau.

The greek "Golden Age" was a time of plenty, abundance and ease. I think this quote is so applicable to our times where electronics offer us so many visual delights that we can become completely disengaged with life and miss God's abundant life.
