“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life.” – Steve Jobs
Do you have a sense of what’s important? Steve Jobs co-founder of Apple died 7 years ago this week. He appeared to be a purposeful man. According to him his mortality helped him to make big decisions. In our case death may be a motivator but so is the return of our Lord.
Are there big decisions that you and your partner need to make? If you knew that Jesus was due to return next week would it affect the choices you make? Would it change the way you love one another, live and reflect your faith?
Prayer (as a couple)
Dear Lord, thank you for _____ (partner’s name). Father help us to see life the way you see it and to recognise the important choices we need to make and to make the right decisions, decisions that please you and reflect your image.
Prayer (for others)
Dear Lord, we lift up _____ and _____ to you. Father help them to see life the way you see it and to recognise the important choices they need to make and to make the right decisions, decisions that please you and reflect your image.
Decisions become easier when your will to please God outweighs your will to please the world. Anso Coetzer
