What's The Point?

"It is better for me to die in behalf of Jesus Christ, than to reign over all the ends of the earth.” ~ Ignatius of Antioch

Most realize that we can’t take anything we accumulate in this life with us to the next, but do our actions reflect our values?  Too often we seek approval from people who, five years from now, won’t matter.  Parents must put down the computer and pick up their child.  Employees must spend less time on their company 401-K and more time on their knees with Christ.

"Don't look for shortcuts to God. The market is flooded with surefire, easygoing formulas for a successful life that can be practiced in your spare time. Don't fall for that stuff, even though crowds of people do.  The way to life - to God! - is vigorous and requires total attention”  (Matt. 7:13-14, MSG).
