What do you want to be remembered for when you die? How would others sum up your life? Will you be remembered as someone who lived to climb the corporate ladder, chased after adventures, took pride in your earthly achievements–or someone whose heart’s desire was simply to know and understand God, to search out the mysteries of God, and to live out His commands?
Let’s choose wisely, while we can.
Father, I confess it’s often hard to prioritise what’s most important in this life–knowing You. Remind me that when the things of this life crumble or fade away, You will still remain. Help me to set aside my earthly ambitions and all the things I take pride in, and make knowing and loving You my main occupation.
