Strategic Life Change

June 3, 2013

The gym I go to, recently replaced all the TVs with new flat screens. They are really nice.

I suppose, one might take it as a wonderful coincidence. You could go to the gym, have no available working machines, but great TVs. All the fun – no sweat!!

This scenario reminds me that I need to assess what really needs to be changed in my life. Why would I worry about upgrading my entertainment equipment if I was short on food? Would I be shopping for a better cell phone if I didn’t have money for clothes?

What about spiritually? God quietly and gently calls us. He is not demanding nor does he shout. I make choices with my time, my activities, and my mind. If my life goes on its current trajectory, am I going to be pleased with where it ends? More importantly, will God be pleased? Am I focused on the things that need attention, or am I working on peripheral things?

Maybe I need to find a gym with broken TV’s and working treadmills. That means all the sweat and no fun. But it would give me the time to think about what I really need to change.

What is the most significant change God wants you to make in your life today?
