Your One and Only Life

You’ve only got one…life that is.

“So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you:  Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work life—and place it before God as an offering.  Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him.  Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking.  Instead, fix your attention on God.  You’ll be changed from the inside out.   Romans 12:1-2 from The Message

What a wonderful verse for the beginning of the year!

There is a story I love about President Dwight D. Eisenhower.  He once told the National Press Club that he regretted not having a better political background so that he would be a better speaker.  He said his lack of skill in that area reminded him of his boyhood days in Kansas when an old farmer  had a cow for sale.  The buyer asked the farmer about the cow’s pedigree, butterfat production, and monthly production of milk.  The farmer said, “I don’t know what a pedigree is, and I don’t have any idea about butterfat production.  But she’s a good cow, and she’ll give you all the milk she has.

Isn’t that all any of us can do?  Give all we  have to God.

One Person Can Make A Difference!
