Three trees discussed their future. All wanted to be something grand but they ended up as a manger for the Christ, the mast of the Christ’s boat, and the cross for Christ’s crucifixion.
These trees didn’t realize it, but they met their goal…serving the Christ in one way or another.
Are you young and ambitious? What are you expecting your life to become?
Are you older now? Do you feel like the life you wanted passed you by?
No matter how your life turned out, no matter your expectation, all that really matters is this.
Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.”(Luke 4:8, NIV)
Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people, (Ephesians 6:7, NIV)
Prayer – God, help us see our life through your eyes. Amen
