What matters most?

May 15, 2018 by Dr. Jack Graham

“I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live…”

–Deuteronomy 30:19

There’s a popular inspirational reading that captures some of the things that really matter most in life. It says at the end of your life

“What will matter most is…
not what you bought, but what you built.
not what you got, but what you gave.
not your success, but your significance.
not that you learned, but that you taught. 
not your competence, but your character. 
not your memories, but the memories that live on in those who love you. 
Living a life that matters doesn’t happen by accident. Life’s not a matter of circumstance, but of choice. Choose to live a life that matters.”

So what has mattered most in your life up until now? Do you know? Has it been your job…your family…your conquests? Listen, regardless of the past, God is saying to you right now, “Choose me…choose life today.”

Now you might say, “I’ve got questions.” That’s okay, come with your questions. Or you might say, “Well, I have issues that I need to take care of first.”  No, just come like you are and let him take care of everything.

Let Jesus wash your sins away and give you a new life in him. There is nothing more important than that.
