How much time do we spend worrying about fitting everything into the day, drafting timelines and making plans? I’m all for making plans and I’m always scheduling my time, but sometimes we move so fast that we miss what is right in front of us. This life is not the game – it’s just the warmup. There is more to life than money, achievements, a prestigious job, having a perfect family and a perfect house. It’s about developing relationships, character, faith, and continuing the mission that Jesus started here on earth. When the stresses of life seem to be piling up, remember – the purpose of your life is bigger than exams, reports, and making your own plans. Your purpose is to serve God.
Game Plan: Think about how life on earth being a temporary assignment might change the way you are living right now. Remember the purpose of your life. God’s plan is so much bigger than our own.
