The things we accomplish or attain are of great value to us. We insure them, we protect them, we cherish them, and we are often measured by them. The SURPASSING VALUE, however, is often realized far beyond the money or time it took to get to them.
For instance, past American Idol winners experience opportunities beyond that stage. It changes their path of life often bringing unfathomable use of their skill and waves of positive influence to others.
My husband’s basketball team recently took the championship in a pre-season tournament. This win was very valuable to both the team and the coaching staff. However what transcends that win and far exceeds the elation of the accomplishment is knowing now that they can successfully come from behind and excel in their skills. It is this SURPASSING VALUE will take them into the upcoming games of the season with added confidence.
God’s Word speaks of what surpasses all our earthly accomplishments...
I also consider everything to be a loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. Philipppians 3:8 HCSB
Knowing Christ far exceeds any pleasure that money can buy or this world can offer. Does my life reflect this knowledge? Do I live this scripture out in my decisions and time management each day? Is the SURPASSING VALUE of Christ’s love for me evident in my life?
PRAYER: Dear Heavenly Father, let me view all the earthly things and accomplishments as loss in light of the SURPASSING VALUE of knowing Christ Jesus, my Lord. Thank you for your plan that transcends daily life bringing deep and purposeful meaning into focus. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
KNOWING JESUS IS THE SURPASSING VALUE OF LIFE!
