"What profit is there for one to gain the whole world yet lose or forfeit himself?"
We all have dreams in life. Goals are set ahead of us that serve as our guide as we journey through life. However, there would be times where we could get so caught up with our dreams that we lose sight of the things that really matter. We get lost in the desire to fulfill these dreams.
Our relationships unfortunately get compromised as we try to chase after our dreams. We forget to give importance to the people who stand by our side when things fall apart. And as we fulfill our dreams, we find ourselves more lost than complete simply because there is no one around who will share the joy with us.
Let us never forget to prioritize what really matters - relationships. The people who will journey with us: making it even more enjoyable and lighter to chase after our dreams. And in the process, we gain more than just our dreams. We will end up learning more and importantly, we will be more loving.
Father, may I never neglect the simple things in life that make the journey towards achieving my dreams more meaningful, fun and exciting. Connect me to the people You have ordained to be my constant companions. Thank You for the grace, the provision and the strength You will bless me with along the way. Amen.
