Something to Think About .....George Hart
Your Two Most Important Days
So what would you say were the two most important days of your life? Several things quickly come to mind like the day I was born, the day I was married, the day my children were born or career choices I have made. But as I think more deeply about it, I’d have to agree with Mark Twain who said, "The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why."
I agree with Twain because if I hadn’t discovered the “Why” I don’t think I would have lived to experience the others. When I was in my late teems I was on a highly destructive path in search for purpose and meaning and was looking in all the wrong places.
When I found God or he found me, not that either of us were lost, it totally changed my life. I discovered after searching everywhere and in everything, there is real purpose, meaning, and significance only in God. It’s interesting that the longer you live the more you realize that the things you thought were going to make you happy don’t. The great job, marriage and material possessions while bringing some level of joy and satisfaction don’t meet our deepest needs. I discovered I was made for another world when the things of this world would not meet my deepest desires.
Early in my Christian journey I read Matthew 6:33 (But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.) and I was young and naïve enough to believe it was true.
Now I know it is true.
