IMPORTANT GOALS FOR MY LIFE                              Home

Or, What to do until the Messiah Comes

I've heard of people who made lists for their lives, like climbing Mount Everest or seeing the Pacific ocean.  I could have a long list like that, but most of that kind of stuff that I wanted to do I've already done, plus it really isn't what is important to me in the long run.  What is important in the long run is what I have done with my life.  Have I helped the people I've met?  Have I truly connected with other human beings?  Have I shared The Truth with others?  When all is said and done, will God say, "Well done, good and faithful servant"?  I certainly do not want to wind up like the old man who finally came to know the LORD in his eightieth year and realized he wasted all of his life!  Fortunately, and God willing, I still have some time.  Until He gives me a definite instruction, I will work towards what is right.

NEVER ENDING 01/2004 07/2004 A great global impact Instead of one huge act, I realized that I can help mankind by touching individual lives one or a few at a time. It is more than practicing random acts of kindness, which I really enjoy, but it is truly connecting with people and helping them to get back on their feet or learn a new skill or have a new attitude. (Ever see the movie Pay It Forward?) Most importantly, we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.
