Ever see the show on National Geographic about people trapped in foreign prisons called “Locked Up Abroad”?
In a recent episode of “Locked Up Abroad,” a British man who spent over 12 months in a cruel foreign prison shared a thought which mirrors my own thinking perfectly. Like the man on the show who endured a life-changing nearly deadly experience, I too lack desire to pursue earthly standards of success (which I think is completely fine for other people as long as they remember what truly matters, relationships with people & our Loving God).
Having defeated cancer & acquired perspective on the truly important aspects of life here on this earth – people & exercising faith in God – I just don’t have the energy (cancer treatment stole nearly all of it) to pursue projects that essentially are meaningless & will soon be forgotten & won’t matter in the least in our eternal lives in Heaven.
Live for what truly matters.
