What Will Matter

Daily Devotion

Ready or not, someday it will all come to an end. There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours, or days.
All the things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten will pass to someone else. Your wealth, fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance.

It will not matter what you owned or what you owed. Your grudges, resentments, frustrations, and jealousies will finally disappear. So too, your hopes, ambitions, plans and to-do lists will expire. The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away.

It won’t matter where you came from or what side of the tracks you live on at the end. It won’t matter whether you were beautiful or brilliant. Even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant. 

So what will matter? How will the value of your days be measured?

What will matter is not what you bought but what you built, not what you got but what you gave. What will matter is not your success but your significance. What will matter is not what you learned but what you taught.

What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, courage, or sacrifice that enriched, empowered or encouraged others to emulate your example. What will matter is not your competence but your character.
What will matter is not how many people you knew, but how many will feel a lasting loss when you’re gone. What will matter is not your memories but the memories that live in those who loved you. What will matter is how long you will be remembered, by whom and for what. 

Living a life that matters doesn’t happen by accident. It’s not a matter of circumstances but of choice. 

 


CHOOSE TO LIVE A LIFE THAT MATTERS.

Step 1: Put on a “Smile” (and if appropriate take a step back) and say to yourself: “Jesus, I need you.” (Diffuses tension, relaxes the jaw, open to change)

Step 2: Breathe In and Breathe out slowly: calms your mind, relaxes your body and renews your spirit. Gives time for the Holy Spirit to guide your thoughts, words, and actions. Disengage from the situation when appropriate. “Jesus, I trust you.”

Step 3: Love: wrap you and the person(s) or situation in the white light of love, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, and peace. Pray for those who persecute you. “Jesus I love you.”

As Jesus is all and in all, we have been given the mandate to love one another.

Jesus Christ is the game changer…Jesus, I need you, trust you and love you.

Unite all in Love for God is Love!
