Day 2: The Attraction of Lesser Things
Throughout this series we are going to be compelled to “place the highest value on relationships.” Too often it seems like we put a higher value on possessions, position and popularity and we fail in our greatest asset – people! Our greatest amount of effort and energy needs to be placed in what will last!
We get so attracted to the temporary! I am not sure why. Maybe its the draw of the excitement or the emotions of life, but it seems hard for all of us (myself included) to prioritize our relationships to the highest level.
“So I tell you, don’t worry about everyday life – whether you have enough food, drink or clothes.
Doesn’t life consist of more than food and clothing?” (Matthew 6:25)
God does not demand the accomplishment of the extraordinary, but He truly wants us to excel in every relationship of life – romantic, friendships, co-workers, bosses, neighbors and even our enemies.
ASK YOURSELF: Do the lesses things distract me from the most important – relationships?
