Choices are EVERYTHING.
"Let your yes be yes and your no be no." (Matt. 5:37)
Believe me life is all about relationships. And this year make the right choices to keep them healthy. You all know that Your most important relationship is with God, meaning The Father, The Son, The Holy Spirit. Second, your wife or husband. Third, Children family. Forth, friends. Now on the other hand you can be like the rich fool that Jesus talks about in Luke 12. What was important to him was money and his retirement. But He died and missed the boat.
At lunch with a friend named Dave, we talked about choices and the choice he made to work out 3 days a week. I said wonderful, but if I joined a gym I would be terrible about going. He understood, and then explained that he meets 2 other guys there and said he would be there and in order for his wheel to have the right amount of spokes. What? He works with these guys in the market place and he said it was important to have great relationships and once you say yes well it means yes. Yes but what about the wheel? He drew me a picture and said those relationships are just one of the spokes of his relationships in his life, and you do not want to break a spoke and have a wobbly tire. Great picture of how important it is to keep strong relationships.
This year! resolve to have strong relationships with God, Spouse, Kids, family, friends, market place, recreating. . . Make great choices this year.
