What Do You Seek
In This Life?

“For all seek their own,
Not the things which are
Jesus Christ’s”

Philippians 2:21

ReachingForGodsWill Everybody is looking for something in this life that is important to them, and it breaks down to two things:

Cause -vs- Comfort
Purpose -vs- Pleasure

We are all seeking to either DO or BE or HAVE Something, and that 'Something' is what is driving us. When you answer that question, you’ll have a good handle on what your life motivations are and where you want to see your life go.

By nature, as today’s scripture reminds us, we naturally are looking out for “#1“ but Jesus instead tells us, “Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.” (Mark 8:34)

It really is counter-intuitive to not seek after what WE want but instead deny ourselves and seek instead what the LORD is asking us to do, and with that comes his promise in Psalm 19:11 - “ Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is GREAT REWARD.” (Psalm 19:11)

Friend there is an earthly 'golden apple'and a Godly GOLDEN APPLE. Put aside the temporary strivings on earth of Pleasure & Comfort and reach for and seek Cause & Purpose in God’s will and you will indeed have the GREATEST REWARD.

God Bless Your Day
