I often get caught up in the world, chasing money and power as I’m sure many do. Francis Chan has a great quote: “Do you know that nothing you do in this life will ever matter, unless it is about loving God and loving the people he has made?”
Pursue excellence and success, but not at the cost of your life.
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
