I heard a provocative question the other day that I wanted to throw out to the husband gang…..
If you didn’t have to worry about making a living, what would you most like to do for the rest of your life?
If a long lost relative left you a trust fund that paid you what you’re making now (okay, maybe a little more) every month for the rest of your lifetime – what would you most like to do with your life?
I was honestly disappointed at how fast my mind fast-forwarded to so many selfish, self-gratifying things. Sorry to admit, but my first thoughts were of me, and what I would like, and what I would buy, and what I would do with all that time off. Would I take the time and do nothing? Would I veg out? Would I keep my job and have extra money to spend on fun toys for me?
After slapping myself around for a bit, I tried to hear from God. I tried to dream about what He would have me do for the rest of my days. What would make my life special – really count for something? If I didn’t have to go in to the office – where would I go? What would He want me to do?
Let’s include your wife’s income also – so neither of you has to work any more…….. What would you do with the rest of your life?
(If no one comments, I guess it wasn’t that provocative after all.)
