When we boil it all down, what really matters?
We can sure make life complicated, and most of us are guilty. We can quickly get caught up in some of the most trivial pursuits and lose focus of what really matters.
Please do not misunderstand. We know there is a place for work to provide for our families. We know we need time for rest and recreation. We also know there are family responsibilities.
This is not an attempt to pull us away from the major areas of our life. The purpose is to simply ask what really matters with respect to these major areas?
If we believe that spiritual and eternal matters are the priority, then why would we spend our lives focused on areas that seem so temporary in nature?
If we can agree on the priority of the spiritual matters, then our prayer must be to see how this priority then influences our work, rest, and family responsibilities.
Let us all lead with our priorities firmly established and influence the major areas of life in ways to make heaven that much sweeter.
