Day 3 - What drives me?

Best chapter so far!!

What really drives me?? I do not have a need for material items. I have no problem being the one to go without. I do not need to live the lifestyle of luxury. I am comfortable with enough $$ to pay my bills and feed my family. I am not driven by need for recognition. I have no problems playing second-fiddle to people or stepping aside to let others shine. I would love to say that my primary driving force is my desire to live for God. However, this does not always feel like the driving force of my actions.

I guess I would like to see what my family and friends would list as the driving force behind my actions. They may perceive the meaning behind my actions differently.

How will you answer the following questions: "what did you do with my son Jesus Christ" & "What did you do with what I gave you" The answer to the first question determines your disposition for eternity, and the second determines what will you do for eternity.

I have no fear of the first questions, it is the 2nd question that scares me. What if I am missing what God has given me. What if I am using the wrong tool. I guess that is one of the reasons why I/We chose to read this book and host a small group at our house. The 2nd part was more for accountability reasons than anything.

"What did you do with what I gave you?"

I'm really hoping that the answer to that question will come for me later in life. Because as of right now....not very damn much. I helped my little sister avoid some of the more horrible abuse, I've made a couple mentally challenged mens lives a bit more livable, I haven't taken up much space and don't plan to, but other than that....nada.
