49 Years


Yesterday was my grandparent's 49th anniversary. Forty-nine years! To me that is amazing. I challenge you to think of where you will be in 49 years. Are you committed to something strongly enough to stick with it for that long, even if it is tough? According to a study by the Barna Group (www.barna.org) 1/3 of all American adults have been divorced at least once. In our world commitment is nothing. You can change your mind every other minute and no one cares. There is no need to stick with anything. Don't you want to try everything you can? God calls us to have one mind, one passion, one purpose. Don't waiver in your focus. Find what you believe, KNOW it, and STICK with it. There is no changing your mind. Half-heartedness is not going to work here. Commit for life or not at all. Do not go through life wandering and confused. Read your Bible and live for Christ! Have in mind His goals for His kingdom and for your life. It may be difficult, but with His help you can reach the goal! Pursue it!
Revelation 3:16
So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.
P.S.- you can find the rest of the Barna results here.
