“Why Goals?” Because the rest of your life matters. Grab that mindset. Often we are merely coping. Striving to do what is necessary and carve out a little “life” in between. When we believe that the rest of our life matters in terms of what we live, do, say, and be – we have a different outlook. The people around us need us to show up at our best. The culture around us needs the Christian perspective and service; the life-giving, loving, and supportive presence that justifies being called the salt of the earth or the yeast in the dough.
How do you think and feel when you truly think that the rest of your life matters? If you’re 50 years old, you could easily end up living another 30 years. Think about what you’ve accomplished, and what you’ve left undone, for the past 30 years. What does another 30 years mean? To you? To God? To those around you? To the culture around you?
It’s midlife, baby! Time to dig in and dig out. We think an important angle to the rest of your life is to think about what it means to be a member of the kingdom of God. Working it all out with your Creator is quite the process, right? Here’s a suggestion: think in terms of opportunities.
