The Main Thing

Your life is filled with details, details, details – like paying bills, getting your kids to school, taking the right meds at the right time, planning for the holidays and on and on and on. While it’s important to do a good job taking care of all the details in your life, you sometimes can get so caught up in them that you forget the bigger picture. That’s why it’s important to remind yourself again and again that the most important thing about your life is that you are created to love God with everything you’ve got and to love others boldly, especially those you wouldn’t normally think about. So keep the main thing the main thing – and discover how it keeps all the details in proper perspective, ensures they don’t overwhelm you and guarantees they are things you do and not things that define who you are.
