2 Things to “Be” and 2 Things to “Do” In Your Life

No one sets an appointment with a thief. Robbery is an unexpected event discovered after it happens! You might see a theft in progress. It will be like this when the Lord Jesus returns.

This one event of history will alter everything. Extreme. Elements destroyed. All things laid bare. Panic. Regret. Power never experienced by human beings.

Every time God intervenes in history, something permanent happens. Changes for the better. Fresh, new, good, much improved, much needed. God is very good at fixing human blunders. How sad that these blunders fill the human timeline. How glad that God is intimately active in this “centuries–long” timeline.

The fact that things are headed toward destruction and re-creation should impact your daily living. Jesus’ return will alter daily life. This great and powerful, loving and merciful King will set up a Kingdom that will never misgovern in any way. At that critical point in history, only what is done for Christ will last. That is profound. Contemplate the impact.

WHAT KIND OF PERSON SHOULD YOU BE? 4 Things to Aim For

In order to live a purposeful, intentional life, there are specific things Scripture teaches you need to do. Regularly. God made people in His image. He crowned people “with glory and honor.” He made them to rule the earth. And He made people for Himself. Yes, God made you for Himself. He wants relationship with you. So – what kind of person should you be?

Peter recommends 4 things in Scripture:

  1. Engage in daily, wholesome thinking.
  2. Remember what you already know.
  3. Stay away from scoffers.
  4. Stay away from people who live for their own pleasure.

Peter reminds – the world was once destroyed by water. (People deliberately forget.) The world will one day be destroyed by fire. (People deliberately ignore.) Into this mix, Peter adds – Jesus will return and create a new heavens and earth. Wow.

So – why think about the end of things?

HOW TO FINISH a 1-PAGE GOALS SHEET – Part 2

In Part 1, we explored 5 super simple processes to develop a 1-Page Goals Sheet. Those 5 steps give you approximately 1/2 page of data. Now develop the other 1/2 page. You are very close to being done with some great goals in place.

Before heading into the last 1/2 of this great life management 1-page resource, you need to refer back to part 1 for a moment. You started a Step By Step Action Plan. Step #1 helped you to establish some basics. The results of this step did not go on your Goals Sheet. Step #2, you asked good questions to identify a short list of things you want to make progress in. Steps #1 and #2  served to “prime your pump.” However, you were told the short list from Step #2 goes on your Goals Sheet. This is where that short list goes. We are going to develop it now.

First, we MUST talk about goals and objectives. They are critical if you are going to live with purpose and not waste your life.

Goals and objectives:

  • Help you establish a direction and pathway.
  • Identify parameters to help you stay on course.
  • Assess progress.
  • Help you accomplish value as you aim higher.

Goals are different from objectives. Let’s look.
