Daily Devotional Reading

One for the Road – “Does My Life Matter?”

Does my life matter?  Do I have any value?  Is there any purpose for my life?

 

These are questions we all ask.

 

If you toss a rock into a lake…how long will it be before the splash has disappeared?

 

Is life like that?  A quick splash…and soon the ripples have all disappeared?

 

The disciples asked Jesus:  “What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?”  That’s another way to ask the question.

 

Jesus answered: “…believe on him whom he hath sent.”

 

So…it’s believing that makes your life worthwhile – giving it value and purpose.

 

In other words…it’s more than doing – it’s being.  Not so much activities – but devotion.  More heart — than hands.

 

Your life really matters…because you believe in Jesus.

 

Simple…but true.
