Fear for Friday

Yeah, it’s Friday. The end of week where I have been giving a lot of thought to what success and failure in this little world of ours really means.  Earlier in the week, I rediscover this little gem from one of ‘muh favs’ – Mr. Francis Chan.

 “Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don’t really matter.”–Francis Chan

That’s a pretty chilling comment.  One that for me produces a bit of introspection each time I reread those words.  What are you succeeding at that really doesn’t matter?  Are you winning the argument, but losing the person?  Are  you making money to buy stuff that just doesn’t really add value?  Are you the best at the worst possible thing?

Spend a little time in introspection today and remember these little thoughts from that guy who well succeeded at some really important things.

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. — Jesus Christ

Friday Focus

Well look at this, it’s Friday, but it only feels like Wednesday.  I can handle more weeks like this!  Let’s wrap up the first work week of the year by reminding ourselves what we should accomplish and strive for in the remaining work weeks of 2013.

Here’s a little focus for your Friday.

“Therefore, if you have been raised with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Keep thinking about things above, not things on the earth, for you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God.”  Colossians 3:1-2

Begin the Work

It’s Friday!, “yeeeaa” (said like that guy on the Sonic commercial when he states that his first hat blew his mind)

Here’s is some motivation to get up and hit the grind ( this applies to everyday, not just Friday)

…. Now begin the work, and the Lord be with you.” …. Now devote your heart and soul to seeking the Lord your God. Begin to build….  (1 Chronicles 22:16-19 NIV)
