This week a friend of mine had some sad news that someone she knew who was a similar young age to us had been killed in an accident. What a shock. In those circumstances it's hard to know what to say. For me though it was a reminder again to make the most of life and to live intentionally. We really don't know what tomorrow holds. We have to make today count.
"So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom." - Psalm 90:12
It starts with the heart. Today we were listening to a podcast interview with John Maxwell. He asked two questions:
Who are you?
What breaks your heart?
Answering those questions I believe, leads us to find purpose and meaning in life, pursuing what God has for us to do as we join Him in His bigger picture.
He said some things to challenge what we fill our hearts and minds with because it's out of what we take in that we're able to give out to others. It starts with filling up with the good stuff, so that we can be fuelled for deep and meaningful friendships, relationships and conversations that can bless, challenge and encourage others.
