This week I was in a small group with a few other guys talking about what it means to have a story to tell. Our lives are more than a glimpse through the memory of time. I really believe that.
What would happen if these words would be the credo of our life?
5 Love God, your God, with your whole heart: love him with all that’s in you, love him with all you’ve got!6-9 Write these commandments that I’ve given you today on your hearts. Get them inside of you and then get them inside your children. Talk about them wherever you are, sitting at home or walking in the street; talk about them from the time you get up in the morning to when you fall into bed at night. Tie them on your hands and foreheads as a reminder; inscribe them on the doorposts of your homes and on your city gates.
How would your life change, if the your focus would move from the now and the present to the generations to come and what that means in the big God’s picture?
What would you do different? What what would that story look like?
I pray that we can all be brave to look to the tomorrow, and be strong and courages in telling that story of our lives, a story that comes from the heart of God for the eternity to come.
