What truly matters.

All too often we’re too busy making a living that we forget to make a life. We’re living beings but are we actually living? Life isn’t meant for us to be so consumed with making money that we forget to cherish those things that’s priceless, like showing up to your child’s football game or recital, or buying your spouse flowers while they are yet living, just because you love them, and not because it’s Vday or their birthday. What about helping the old lady across the street, or volunteering in your community, or telling others about the goodness of God, being kind and simply spreading the love of Christ. You see, we get so caught up in taking care of business, that oftentimes we forget to take care of ourselves and others. We try to compensate for quality time missed with loved ones by buying gifts or by working to make sure that our family can have a place to eat and sleep and continue to do the things that they enjoy, but what if I told you that the most important thing your loved ones want from you is love. Not only your family, but love is the most important thing any of us can give to each other. I know some of you may be thinking that being a good provider is the way that you show your family that you love them, and that’s fine, you most certainly should be an adult and take care of your responsibilities, but don’t just allow your money to speak for you. Tell your family and friends that you love them, show up to that ball game, support your spouse in his or her endeavors, let strangers see the God in you when they see you. Money isn’t everything, love is… and that’s why money can’t buy you love. It’s priceless. At the end of this life, it’s not going to be about how much money we’ve made, it’s going to be about how much love was given to our fellow human… that’s what truly matters.
