WHY?

What is the definition of "success"? At different stages in life "success" takes on different definitions. In middle school it may mean passing onto high school. In high school it may mean making the team, getting the prom date, and eventually the college scholarship to the school of your dreams. Then comes the ideal career, spouse, home, the best children ever and on and on. However, as we reach our grand parenting years, we begin to wonder if the effort was worth it and we ask more "why" questions than "what" and "who"questions. Why did I spend so much time here or there? Why did I not do this or that? You get the picture! As a believer, the "why" questions should be the most important. What are at reasons for doing what we do? Why?????
Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works. "Assuredly, I say to you, there are some standing here who shall not taste death till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom."(Matthew 16:24-28)”
We should live to bring God glory, in EVERYTHING we do. He alone is our reason!
