Priorities – Daily TAGline

Thought:

It’s okay to look at the past and the future. Just don’t stare.

Challenge:

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with re-living some fond memories and learning from your past. There’s also nothing wrong with planning and visualizing your future. However, don’t spend too much time doing either one at the expense of making the most of the present. Focus on today and you’ll create many great memories and your future will be bright.

Reference:

Jesus said to him, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.” Luke 9:62 (NABRE)

Integrity – Daily TAGline

Thought:

Tell me I’m clever, Tell me I’m kind, Tell me I’m talented, Tell me I’m cute, Tell me I’m sensitive, graceful and wise, Tell me I’m perfect – But tell me the truth.

Challenge:

Only telling people what they want to hear and only hearing what you want to hear often leads us to a distorted view of the truth. Make a conscious effort today to be honest with yourself and honest with others. As you develop this habit of honesty, you will find it requires far less effort and yields far more peace of mind.

The sum of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous rules endures forever. Psalm 119:160 (NABRE)

You can waste your life drawing lines. Or you can live your life crossing them.
