We all have plans. We all have dreams that we are chasing and ambitions to fulfil. We have to set goals, achieve them and aim at new ones. Human quest for success is just insatiable. Life has a way of cutting us into webs of endless pursuit and cycles where we lose sight of what really matters and can’t put what really matters in perspective anymore. We are reduced to define what our life is worth being spent on by what we have been able to master or what we think we won’t fail in.
Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast and brag. All such boasting (about your own plans) is evil.
James 4:13-16 (NIV)
SLOW DOWN! You have ONE life to live.
What would you have lived for if you had the absolute influence in making that choice?
What would you have done if all jobs, careers, professions, businesses, vocations or services pay/reward equally?
What is that one thing that you can give up every other thing for?
What would you do today if you knew it was your last day on earth?
What is that one thing you will do, knowing that you can never fail at doing it?
I really hope your answers to these questions is one and the same, or else, give it more thought.
Slow down! Live now! Live true! Better still; ask the One that framed you up, “What am I supposed to be doing NOW?”
