For our latest Men’s Group we took a little detour from our Proverbs study. I thought it would be good for us as “busy” men to stop for a while and think about why we are doing what we are doing. God is concerned more with our hearts and motives than He is what we do (Lk. 6:45; Mt. 22:37).
It’s easy to get caught up in doing the “right” things so much so that we begin to view them as an end in themselves. It’s not that we should stop doing these things, but that we should remember why we are doing them and keep the Gospel at the heart of them all!
In this video, Matt Chandler, does such a great job of reminding us what the Bible says about the number of our days. He reminds us of the futility of chasing anything else other than whole-hearted pursuit of Christ and His Kingdom.
