God matters the most. Get your life in line with His plan, centered on Jesus, His only Son.
People matter the next-most. We wrap our lives up with so much “stuff”, and we have so many gadgets, and often find ourselves spending a lot of time in our own little cocoons (ahem…blogging…). But we have in this life a golden opportunity to do things that take on eternal significance (read Jesus’ words in Matthew 6), and so many of them involve the way we interact with—and influence—people.
One of the secrets of life is to find the right balance. It’s true in ministry, and it’s true in life. Here’s a guy who didn’t practice this principle:
Time flies—and I mean, it really, really flies. I knew 50 would come one day, if Jesus tarried and my health was good, but I had no idea that it would come so quickly.
And as one of my final posts will suggest, since life does fly, can I urge you to live it? Live life. You only get one go-round on this earth. And you get no points for knowing who’s won Dancing with the Stars every season.
