An old Greek philosopher once said, “Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow you may die.”  This led the Latin poet, Horace, to describe this as “Carpe Diem – Seize the Day.”  At face value, this sentiment exudes a very negative, fatalistic view of life – get what you can now, before it’s too late.  But Carpe Diem can also have a positive meaning as Christ gives us a grander reason to Seize the Day.  God promises to never leave or forsake us.   He asks us to “seize the day” and place our faith in Him to lead us to eternal life!
