Topic: Living A Life That Matters [Wednesday April 25, 2018]
Scripture: For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption: Acts 13:36
Thought For The Day: You cannot live well until you live beyond yourself.
The Scripture makes it clear that one of the ways to live a life that matters is to impact and add value to the lives of others. Living to enhance the value and worth of others is living a life that matters.
Now, when we say that a person is living to make impact and add values to lives, what do we mean?
1. Living to make a difference and not just to make a living
When you live to make a difference on people, their lives are changed positively when they come in contact with you. They do not leave you the way they met you.
- Living to bring the best out of others
To bring the best out of others is living to impact lives. Bringing the best out of others is living a life that matters.
Living to add colour and value to others
This is when you make a conscious determination that the major preoccupation of your life is to ensure that people do not remain valueless or devalued as long as they come in contact with you.
Beloved, when you have the privilege of impacting people, you live life to the full and make the most out of it. When you do this consistently, the joy you derive from impacting such lives fuels your own life.
Remember this: You cannot live well until you live beyond yourself.
1. Be interested in the welfare of other people.
2. Pray for people and endeavour to meet their needs.
Prayer: O Lord, I ask for the grace to live beyond myself. Help me to be concerned about the welfare of people in order to impact their lives positively Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
