1 Corinthians 15:58 (ESV) “Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.”
Today’s verse gives some great advice for making sure our labor is about the right thing. I used to think a lot about the money or the status I could achieve. You know, the whole pride thing. But when I really came to Christ, gave Him all of my life, and kept my focus on HIM, I found a peace I never knew I could have. I was always running to the next thing, never content with what I had. I looked past the blessings and missed a lot. Now I take my time and try to keep my eyes on the goal. I try to be more like Jesus in every way, with no apologies or excuses. Jesus went courageously and willingly to the Cross. He kept His eyes on the goal for us. We should at least keep our eyes on HIM.
