Good is Good, Best is Eternal!

There is always something going on with our family activities or with ministry related meetings and activities or with school related seems never ending and exhausting! So what are we to do?

God has really been speaking to me over the past several months about evaluating what is going on within my life, family and ministry. I have been challenged in my Quiet Time to follow Matthew 22:37, "And He (Jesus) said to him, 'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind (English Standard Version).'" There are MANY things that I am involved in that are very "good" things...BUT, am I choosing to pursue the good things in life or the "best" things? Am I following the things that will last for eternity, or am I just going through the motions of doing some good things that no one will remember 50 years (or less) from now?

How about you? How about your family? Take a moment to just look at your calendar for the past two weeks and the next two weeks. Is your calendar full of lots of good things or are there eternal impact activities filling your pages?

Pray that God will open your eyes to those eternal purposes that He is calling you to pursue...and then DO IT!! Measure every activity by this test: Is it good, or is it best? Choose to live for eternity!
