What we value shows up in our lives. In fact, what we buy, what we invest our time in, where we go and what we do all reflect this. While these things may not be wrong in themselves, we have to gauge what has our hearts!
It is my belief that we should all live a life that impacts generations, by giving to something BIGGER than us. This is the life of a Legend!
Christ followers have the chance to be great by serving! We have the chance to be great by giving Him our hearts, seeing what He can do within us! This opportunity connects back to what we value because our values dictate what we do, where we go and what we invest in.
What do you value today? What has your heart?
This, at best, is a maze to navigate through as we are bombarded with different focuses daily; however, His Word is a foundation for us to build from.
“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”2 Corinthians 4:18
Notice the direction of value, it’s on what lasts forever! It’s what we do with God!
This doesn’t mean that nothing in our natural world matters. We are to be excellent, be our best and watch God enlarge our heart, our world and our influence. He has blessings for us to enjoy; it’s just these things will end but everything with God will last!
Here is what happens when we have the Value of Legends:
#1. We are bold and confident. We know who we are and we are comfortable with it. Because our value is in Him, we are infused with strength and power.
#2. We are not moved by fickle and temporal things. This is huge as many people care too much about what others think, if they like us or if they will accept us. This is a trap that leads to wrong values and a blurred purpose. When our values are right, we love people but don’t care what they think of us.
#3. We are brave and courageous. In times of adversity and in times of challenge, we stand brave with courage. We are not afraid to confront in love, to stand for what we believe, to be who we are, while loving others for who they are.
This is our chance to be a Legend! To value the eternal things in our life! Allow your life to expand by becoming a Legend for God. Allow these three things to be a part of who you are as Christ empowers you daily. This is our place, this is our portion!
Go for it and maximize who God has you to be!
Have a great week and love you all! The best is yet to come!
Something great is happening,
