God: set the standards….
Galatians 5:7 (KJV) “Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth?”
In our homes, our jobs, our relationships there is always the thought at the back of our heads that we need to be one step ahead of where we are; we are in a competition to do good and be better and to accomplish something else.
It never dies, the compulsion to achieve and with it all we sometimes forget that the ultimate aim is to seek that which is of importance to God: mind His business, be busy about His work and let that be our most important race.
We run and are busy with all that pertains to the things of this world, yet His business is left untended.
A time will come when He will be asking us the hard question of why, what hindered you, how did it happen?
Good time to think on this question…
