What Are You Doing With Your Life?
Proverbs 14.1 "The wise woman builds her house, but the foolish pulls it down with her hands."
Have you ever thought about the kind of life you want to live by the time you're say, forty or fifty or sixty years old? Of course, you don't want it to be worse than it is now, you want it to be better, sweeter and greater. That's what it should be; and so shall it be in Jesus' name. Amen.
Dreams come true, but they don't just happen; many times, we've got a part to play in making them happen. Life is like a building; our decisions, our choices and our actions are the tools with which we are either building or destroying our lives. A lot of people have destroyed their lives by joining bad company, using drugs, and engaging in other destructive habits. The truth is that when we do things contrary to the will of God, spiritually, financially, etc, we are in many ways using our own hands to pull down our lives! Judas Iscariot pulled down his life by betraying Jesus, he hung himself; Reuben pulled down his life by sleeping with his father's concubine, he was cursed; Esau destroyed his destiny by selling his birthright for a portion of food, he lost his blessing.
I encourage you today to make wise choices and decisions. Choose to have a glorious future; choose to please the Lord at all times; choose to be faithful; choose to be diligent; choose to build a life that generations to come would be inspired by, a life that your children would bless you for.
