“Where there is no vision, the people cast off restraint; but blessed is he who keeps the law” Proverbs 29:18.
We are living in the busiest and nosiest time in history so far. People have instant access to each other, demands and expectations are becoming greater, the pressure to attain something whether material or personal goals are in the forefront of our minds often. The question people often ask me is “ What is next?” As if the now is not enough.
The scriptures encourage us to keep the eternal perspective that our life as a disciple or follower of Christ is not about what we do but about the quality of our friendship with God the father. Our vision should be one of devotion not driven into the doing.
Jesus left us with two commands:
‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself'” Luke 10:27.
Busyness doesn’t get us any points in heaven but knowing Jesus does and Him knowing you – quality relationship. Plug into the quality and ditch the busyness treadmill you might be on. God wants to know you, “your name is written in the palm of His hand” Isaiah 49:16 to God you are worth so much!
Don’t get distracted by the seductiveness of self-importance leading to high expectations and driveness. Let the vision of devotion to the person of God become once more a priority and from there God will direct the pathway of your life.
