What is going to be the most important event of your day?
Is it going to be a conversation you have with your boss, a lunch you have with a friend, a decision you make to buy or sell a stock, a trip to the grocery store, or some other experience you engage with your feet, hands, mouth, eyes or ears?
There are always tasks and projects we need to complete to keep our life running smoothly, but to live an inspired life that doesn’t get burdened by the endless list of jobs often faced, it’s helpful to remember that the most important event of a day is whatever causes you to be more spiritually minded than ever before.
Spiritual mindedness gives joy and buoyancy to life. It’s what matters most in the long run.
Money is earned, then spent. Luncheons begin, then end. Errands are run, then more errands to run appear. Seeking fulfillment through human ways and means never happens. Trying to find a feeling of completeness and wholeness through following a worldly-minded agenda can leave one feeling empty-handed in the end.
Genuine happiness comes from God, and is found through spiritual sense.
The most important event of your day will be whatever you do that contributes to your spiritual mindedness.
When you grow in spiritual understanding, the improved view of spiritual reality you gain will stick with you and bless you forever. You will never lose it. Like making a good investment that increases in worth over time without abating, the spiritual growth you make compounds with increasing good effect on your experience day by day, month by month, year by year. And the even better part is, that all the spiritual gain you make over time, remains with you long after you leave a material sense of things behind.
Any gain from the world is left behind. But all your gain in Spirit is forever yours.
So, feel free to make wise choices today. Choose the activities that benefit you the most. Choose to grow spiritually, to know God better, and to use your time well.
The most important events of your day are the spiritual events.
