big rocks first.

Live life with the end in mind. I shared this thought with our team earlier this week, and can see the benefits of living in this mindset already. There have been so many reminders in my life lately to live for what matters most.

To further focus the idea, not just what matters most to me, but ultimately what matters most eternally. So, in thinking forward and desiring freedom - we have made some subtle shifts in our home this week.

It is the whole idea of putting the big rocks first, and seeing that the little rocks will still fit in (and the terrible irony of what happens when the little rocks hinder the big ones from fitting in).

Here are a couple examples:
People before projects.
Conversation before technology.
Interaction before entertainment.

The result affirms what Jesus says... "seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well."
