Purpose filled Lives --The Big Picture!
"Can't see the forest because of the trees," heard
it all my life, didn't really understand it until
I jumped out of a plane though.
Last week I told you I went ski diving. Once the
parachute opened I allowed myself to enjoy the
ride. One thing I noticed was how thick the forest
was below, how green the trees were and what
things seemed close were in reality miles away.
However, on the ground you wouldn't be able to see
fifty feet in front of you because of all the
limbs and bushes. And with that I realized how
short sighted I had become, not only my vision,
but also in my thinking. This tree, that tree,
watch out for that poison oak, oh look out for
that hole. After a while, where has the beauty
gone? I didn't see green plush trees that went on
for miles, all I saw was what I focused right in
front of me.
In my younger days I would hear people say, "The
proof is in the pudding". Well, I am here to tell
you, the proof is NOT always in the pudding, nor
is it in the beauty in the trees. In our lives
it's the same way. We become so legalistic in our
thinking and ways that we loose sight of the
purpose Jesus has for us. What is the big picture?
Is it in the pudding and the details NO, it's in
the SOUL!! It's not about us, it's about others.
Winning them to give their hearts to Christ. That
is what it is all about, that's our forest, "as
many as possible before I return." that is what he
Yet, we worry about what one may say, or the prim
and proper way of doing something or want
ingrediance is in this approach. The beauty is in
conveying Jesus' love for us.
Failing to see the forest for the trees is like
driving a car through some parking lot that has
speed bumps. If you focus so much on the bump
they feel larger than life, yet if you focus on
your destination then a little bump here and
another one there seems like a piece of pebble.
Don't let the little things get you down in life
this week. Focus on the bigger picture and
purpose of what Jesus has for you. One of the
biggest tragedy's you can have is not living a
life that Jesus has for you. The question is, "Can
you say you are living it?" Life is not in the
trees nor is it in the proof of the pudding, life
is in Jesus Christ almighty. Live a purpose filled
life this week.
