2016 is almost over, which inevitably leads you to reflect on what has taken place. Our world was a whirlwind; sometimes invigorating, but more often frightening and overwhelming. Likewise, your life was filled with peaks and valleys, including some that may have fundamentally changed you forever. But the closing out of year is not just about what has been, it also prompts you to look ahead to 2017. Certainly, you are thinking about what you can accomplish, how you can fulfill your dreams and what you can do to become financially secure. Hopefully, however, you are also pondering other things: following that passion God has put in your heart, loving your family, living more faithfully as a disciple of Jesus and growing in your generosity towards others. The reason for this is simple. Doing what matters most is what matters most.
