I recently read a blog post from worklife.org about working wholeheartedly, and one paragraph in particular really struck me. I keep playing the words over in my mind:
Godly success involves a partnership between you and God. Success in God’s economy means achieving the purpose for which God made you. That purpose can never be discovered without seeking Him with a whole heart. You may achieve great things without seeking God, but you will never achieve the things God set out for you to achieve unless you seek Him. If you do not seek Him, you may find yourself one day climbing to the top of the ladder only to find it leaning against the wrong wall.
As I reflected on those words, God brought to mind Matthew 6:33, where Jesus said “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” So much easier to read, than to do.
