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.
