I’ve decided to answer texts more quickly. I can easily mull over a simple response for several hours. I’ve also decided to tell people when I’m praying for them or when I’m thinking about them. Did you make a new year’s resolution? Was it health related? Spiritual? Mental?
We’re currently in a series called “margin” at ehills. (Watch the series kickoff message on finances). Let’s be honest…we tend to live life all out, going 100 miles an hour, doing a lot of stuff, without much room for generosity or rest. I push the limits of my finances, my time, my work, my relationships, trying to squeeze every last drop that I can for today.
At the end of the day when you drain every resource though, that can leave your cup pretty empty. The awesome part of a life with Christ is that your cup runs over and the well we draw from is never ending and eternal. But, here’s a question I ask myself: Did I pour out for the things I think are best? Or did I pour myself out onto the things that promote life and sharing the Gospel?
