What is going to be your most important accomplishment today? Will it be the money you earn, the errands you run, the people you call, or the Facebook posts you read?
Money is necessary to pay the bills, but it comes and goes. The list of errands to run seems to never end. Conversing with others is pleasant and often fruitful, but will be wrapped up with a conclusion, and reading Facebook posts may please the emotions, but typically are of fleeting fancy.
The most important accomplishment of your day will be attaining what sticks with you forever—gaining a deeper understanding of God.
God is all reality. There isn’t anything outside of God worth seeking for long run benefit.
God is not here today, gone tomorrow. God is not a fleeting fancy. God is not a temporary experience. God is the Real Thing when it comes to seeking something which is worthwhile and truly beneficial to have and know.
Oftentimes, the human mind believes running its list of errands is more important than spending time quieting down, getting thought in-tune with reality and experiencing spiritual peace. When this happens, the human mind is wrong! Feeling the deep peace that comes from knowing God is much more important than running around madly trying to keep up with an endless mortal agenda of things to do, and never feeling like you’re quite done.
Get to know God above all else. The knowledge you gain will bring increased health and happiness your way, and it will stick. It will stay with you forever, far after this earthly experience is left behind.
“Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need” Matthew 6:33, NLT.
