I listened to a sermon today that had some really great points that I thought I would share. You could probably describe me as a control freak, type A personality or task oriented. These are great qualities to have because like Martha in the New Testament, I get things done. But sometimes I allow my plans to get in the way of God’s plan and this sermon was a great reminder to keep the main thing the main thing and that is making sure that whatever I do I need to spend time with Jesus. Here are some points from the sermon that really hit home for me. I hope they will help you too.
- Not everything that you don’t plan on happening is a distraction. Sometimes the things we have planned are the real distraction.
- It is illogical to believe that what is important to me should be important to everybody else.
- You trying to control somebody else’s priorities could be a cover up that you don’t have yours in order.
- Know the line where your responsibility ends and God’s sovereignty begins.
