The Man Minute sixty second investments in Christ-like manhood
Fast forward to your retirement party. People are shaking your hand, telling you they'll miss you. Saying things like, "You were the best in the world at what you did. Hey, do you remember that time ..."
Fast forward again to the Monday after that party. Your colleagues at work are moving on as usual. Most likely, your replacement was already in place before you left. You went from having a host of people around you, and now, on Monday, it's just you.
So the question is, if in life we spend all of our heart, soul, and time pouring ourselves into an organization, and yet those people are not going to be there for us in the end, then who deserves the best of our heart, soul, and our time??
It's a sad reality that many a man invests the "best" of himself into people who never intended to share the rest of their lives with him. And in doing so, he burns the very people that love him the most ... his family.
You can be replaced by your employer by the end of the day, but you are irreplaceable to your family. Invest in those things which bring God the most glory and bring those around you the most joy.
