THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Mom walked into the study and found her 4-year-old daughter pounding away on Dad's typewriter.
She asked, "What are you doing, Honey?"
The little girl answered, "I'm writing a story."
Mom asked, "What is the story about?"
She answered, "I don't know. I can't read."
For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told.
As we "pound away" in our lives, I wonder if we aren't writing a story that we cannot read.
Sometimes we're so very busy, but we seem to get nothing accomplished.
Do you ever feel that way?
The Bible teaches us that God "reads" our life story.
His judgment is the only one that really counts.
God knows ALL the story!
He's the One Who decides our place of eternal existence, and determines the rewards for our service to Him.
Other people see our life story too.
How we live does have some influence on other people.
How are they reading MY life story TODAY?
What values am I expressing that are worthy of attention?
As Christians, we should determine that TODAY we will live our lives as a "story" that tells of the value of Christ in our lives.
It's a DAILY struggle, because incidences and instances in life interfere with our plans.
Today, let me talk WITH Christ and talk Christ.
Today, let me walk WITH Christ and show others His love.
Today, instead of "pounding away" at my life's story, let me live it with purpose.
