Let us lay aside every weight and the sin that so easily ensnares us, and run with endurance the race that lies before us, keeping our eyes on Jesus, the source and perfecter of our faith.
Is yours a life of moderation or accumulation? Are you more interested in the possessions you can acquire or in the person you can become? The answers to these questions will determine the direction of your day and , in time, the direction of your life.
Ours is a highly complicated society, a place where people and corporations vie for your attention, for your time, and your dollars. Don’t let them succeed in complicating your life!! Keep your eyes focused instead upon God.
If your material possessions are somehow distancing you from God, discard them. If your outside interests leave you too little time for your family or your Creator, slow down the merry-go-round, or better yet, get off the merry-go-round completly. Rember: God wants your full attention, and He wants it today, so don’t let anybody or anything get in his way.
From my own insights: if you are a spouse of a husband or wife that has accepted their call into ministry PLEASE PLEASE be patient, supportive and allow the other spouse to do what God has called them to do!! From experience it is the hardest thing to do is to have to even consider choosing between your spouse or God!! 🙂
