How much of what you’re doing matters?
It doesn’t take a New Year to be a good time to seriously weigh how much of what you’re doing with your life actually matters.
I took a few hours of my life yesterday to listen to the football game between the Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions. I have several friends who are Cowboys fans and who are hoping this is the year their beloved Cowboys finally … finally! … make it back to the Super Bowl.
I’m not saying we don’t need a little “fluff” in our lives. Every waking moment isn’t going to be profound. There’s still dishes that need washing, laundry that needs to be done, and a yard that needs to be mowed. But our priorities — which are represented in what we do with our time — are choices, and they can be directed to make more out of our lives than a pile of fluff.
How are you going to spend your life this year? When you’re contemplating goals for 2016 and look back on this year, will there be a pile of fluff or a life lived through and for Christ that made a difference in the lives of others in a way that glorified God?
