I Will Carry On. I Will...

"Carry each other’s burdens; in doing so you will fulfill the law of Christ. If anyone thinks they are important when they aren't, they are deceiving themselves. Let everyone be sure that he is doing his very best, for then he will have the personal satisfaction of work well done and won’t need to compare himself with someone else. Each of us must bear our own faults and burdens. For none of us is perfect!

Those who are taught the word should share all good things with their teacher. Make no mistake, God is not mocked. A person will harvest what they plant. Those who plant only for their own benefit will harvest devastation from their selfishness, but those who plant for the benefit of the Spirit will harvest eternal life from the Spirit. Let’s not get tired of doing good, because in time we’ll have a harvest if we don’t give up. So then, let’s work for the good of all whenever we have an opportunity, and especially for those in the household of faith."

~ Galations 6:2-10

I love this passage of scripture. I think it sums up perfectly the daily mindset I strive to apply to all aspects of my life: As a husband, a father, a friend, in business, in my training, and in my spiritual walk with Christ.

It's an awesome framework for daily living if you take a step back and look at the big points:

*I need to seek out opportunities to SERVE others; in doing so I will please The Lord.

*I need to be HUMBLE because I'm not as cool as I think I am.

*Everyday I will give my VERY BEST so that - no matter the outcome - I will be happy with my EFFORT.

*When I SCREW UP, I will acknowledge it.

*Every ounce of blood, sweat, tears, energy, pain, and stress poured into each day is a deposit into what will someday be a handsome REWARD. I must carry on; I must Protect This House...

Love & Blessings! Have a happy Friday and an awesome weekend:)
