At the end of the day...
It's not our busyness at work that fulfill us
But the stillness of our hearts
At the end of the week...
It's not the loud party that refreshes us
But a quiet soul ready to be filled
At the end of the month...
It's not how many money we get from our paycheck
But how much are we willing to give
At the end of the year...
It's not how many places we've traveled into
But how many lives we've touched
It's not the new skills we've acquired
But the life lessons that we've learned - being grateful, forgiving, humble
But how well we understand God's message to us through the Bible
At the end of this life...
It's not how accomplished we are in life and career
But how we love, share, encourage people that came along our way
It's not how we many awards and recognition we had
But how God would evaluate us and will we hear from Him "Well done, my good and faithful servant!"
