How’s Your Aim?

MAY 14TH, 2022      |      C.S. Lewis wrote, “The Christians who make the most difference in this present world are the ones who think most about the next.” That is a profound truth. When “life happens,” do you find yourself running in circles, trying to fix something or someone, determined to do the “right” thing, only to find that you’ve done just the opposite? 

How’s Your Aim?

Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.

C.S. Lewis wrote, “The Christians who make the most difference in this present world are the ones who think most about the next.” That is a profound truth.

When “life happens,” do you find yourself running in circles, trying to fix something or someone, determined to do the “right” thing, only to find that you’ve done just the opposite?

Center your life on Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on the Cross. Problems of this world will still come; but you will see them from a different perspective as you rest in the blessed assurance that He has your life in His hands.

Dying to self, serving others, and reflecting the love of Jesus is the natural result of a Cross-centered life. Today, when you find your focus slipping, stop, breathe, and refocus on the Cross of Christ. You’ll be a better parent, spouse, employee, boss, and friend.

The rest of the Lewis quote reads, “Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you get neither.” So, aim for Heaven!

Thank God that focusing on Him can change each day, each moment, and each interaction with friends, neighbors, and co-workers.

Ask the Lord to reveal areas of your life that you are still trying to control. Pray for the strength to give them back to Him.
