I have found myself reflecting on what is important in life.
I look around and see so many unhappy faces of men and women and children, and I ask myself why? Why are these people so unhappy?
Then I look and see some people whose lives look like they are so hard and these people are smiling and happy. And once again, I ask, why?
What makes the difference between the first group who are unhappy and the one which was?
You see, the first group had no hope and was focusing on the wrong things, while the other one was focusing on the important things.
What are the important things?
Some important things are doing God’s will, spending time with family, and sharing His word with others.
When we focus on the important things we wouldn’t be bogged down with who said what, or who did what, or what people think about us.
We wouldn’t be focused on the negatives of life, but on all of the wonderful blessings that we have.
Isn’t it amazing what happens when we count our blessings?
So today, let us spend time focusing on the important things in life. Let us focus on the positives, for it is only then that we can truly receive the peace and joy that God desires us to have.
