Life Is About Balance. Here are my priorities:
1. Jesus Christ
John 14:6 (NIV)
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
God is in all powerful and all knowing and through his Son Jesus Christ we have full access to His amazing peace, love, and joy. I dedicate the most important part of my time and resources to Christ in order to better ensure that I am available to participate in His plan of redemption and eternal life for all. As we grow deeper in our faith, we realize that a knowledge and acceptance of Jesus Christ is the only way to help someone for this life and the life after.
2. Health and Fitness
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (NIV)
Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.
We can better share in God’s amazing plan by remaining healthy, energetic, and physical able to perform his work throughout our entire time here on Earth. This is my second highest priority, even above family and friends. If I am not healthy and active, my ability to care for my family and friends is compromised.
3. Family & Friends
Psalms 128:3-4 (ESV)
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table. Yes, this will be the blessing for the man who fears the Lord.
I love God blessed me with a beautiful wife, biological daughter, and large extended family; however, this is only a small portion of my Christian family. The Lord calls Christian believers our brothers and sisters, so this is equal part of my family. I pray that I prioritize the amazing people that God has placed in my life.
Ecclesiastes 8:15 (NLT)
So I recommend having fun, because there is nothing better for people in this world than to eat, drink, and enjoy life. That way they will experience some happiness along with all the hard work God gives them under the sun.
All work and no play… no way! I really want to visit all 194 countries and I’m not too far away from that goal, believe it or not. I want to experience all the awesome moments that The Lord has prepared for me.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 (ESV)
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.
Remember, you don’t know what you don’t know. Remain open-minded and seek knowledge and wisdom.
Proverbs 21:20 (ESV)
Precious treasure and oil are in a wise man’s dwelling, but a foolish man devours it.
Money to enjoy life and share with others. Blessing others and making the world a better place is an important part of my mission here.
