Men are motivated by goals. Goals create results. Results mean success.
What about the relationships?
I face relational challenges as I am aware of lack of patience in relating to people that are most close to me… Carol, Karis and Kaden.
I am challenged not necessarily by the quantity of time but the quality of the quantity.
What questions do I ask my wife and my children?
How attentive and absorbed am I when I am with them?
Why do I want to spend time with them in the first place?
It’s like the daily Bible reading time. I check off my YouVersion Bible reading schedule daily or catch up occasionally.
But I am faced with the same challenge:
What questions am I asking God?
How attentive and absorbed am I in reading God’s word?
Why do I want to spend time in God’s word in the first place?
Then I realize this: I am prone to performance and how people view and review my performance than be present before the face of God.
I need Jesus who saves me from my performance and who shows me his patience.
Do you need Jesus?
