We can all go around like little Marthas, worrying about this and that, trying to please or impress him or her, and trying to please or impress God. We can make Plans B and C while doing everything in our power to ensure that Plan A never fails, fussing over details and spending all of our time working hard for the world or working hard for "the cause".
Don't lose sight of Jesus; our reward is in heaven and will not come from this world.
Through all of our good works, all of our busyness, and through all of our efforts though, if we're losing sight of Jesus -- if we're overlooking the fact that our reward is in heaven and will not come from this world -- then we're missing the point entirely.
All of our good deeds, favors, words... everything should be done in the light of our Savior.
Check your true motives and focus on Him, not on what you're doing.
CHECK YOURSELF: Do you easily get lost in your to-do list, focusing on the whats, and forgetting the why? What is one thing you can do every day to help yourself remember the why and Who you're doing everything for? Share in the comments! ⤵︎
