20 Days of Prayer and Fasting - Day 14

Ladders or circles? 

Some people are climbing ladders.  

Some people are making circles. 

Which one are you? 

I ask people all the time what they want out of life. They all want success. I ALWAYS GET A DIFFERENT ANSWER when I ask them to spell that out for me. But what is disheartening is that most don’t know what success looks like. They know that they want it.  

The problem is, it could hit them in the face like a 2 x 4, and they wouldn’t know it.  

You must know that you are circling the right things in your life and not chasing ladders led against the worst ideas possible.  

A friend of mine, who in his own right could make 3 or 4 times the money he is making right now, doesn’t. Why? Because success for him is raising a family that will grow to be followers of Christ and leaders in whatever career they choose. His absence from his family isn’t negotiable.  

I know some people that would call him foolish.  

I call him focused.  

Are you focused on your circles or ladders? 

What to pray for today.  

Pray for our community that they will desire a real and relevant faith in their hearts, families, and future. That we will be the church that can lead them to a new life in Christ.
