Life Matters: Effects Of Misplaced Priority
In life, the greatest tragedy is not death. It is living without well defined priorities, it is worse than death. In fact, it is more tragic to be alive and have a misplaced priority than to be dead.
Truth is that you were not born JUST to make a living; you were born for far more than that – you were sent to live out an assignment on this planet. You were born to make a difference in this world.
Its sad that many people die without manifesting the seed of greatness in them simply because their priorities were misplaced.
Thousands today live a life of regret, sorrow and pains just because they placed their priorities on the wrong things of life – the accumulation of wealth and self- centeredness.
People are still making amazing sacrifices over the VAINEST of things, making enemies over worthless material things, just because their priorities are misplaced. What more can I say? Look back at that one thing you want to kill and die for today and see what becomes of it tomorrow.
Slow down with the sense of attachment and blind pursuit of things, for today’s GOLD is sometimes tomorrow copper. Settle down for something precious whose value will transcend time and ages.
It is time for you to settle this issue -what are you going to live for? Will you shrink back and live a comfortable self-centered life? Will you live for your own goals, comfort and pleasure or will you live the rest of your life for God’s glory?
Living the rest of your life for the glory of God will require a change in your priorities, your schedules, your relationship and everything else. It will sometimes mean choosing a difficult path instead of an easy one.
You may hesitate, wondering whether you will have the strength to live for God. Don’t worry, God will give you what you need if you will just make the choice to live for him. Right now, God is inviting you to live for his glory by fulfilling the purpose he made you for. It is really the only way to live.
