Good morning.


Jesus always seemed to be able to discern the essential from the noise. "Under all his gentleness there is a purpose harder than steel." (Dorothy Sayers)


Jesus understood his purpose and that allowed him to take the long list of things he could do and prioritize it down to the things he knew he should do to “finish the work the Father gave him to do” (John 17:4).

Jesus knew the difference between urgent and important. And with his work prioritized, Jesus remained focused on His purpose.


To follow Christ's example we must decide what matters most and allow those choices to prioritize our commitments.


But let’s face it, this is easier said than done. We all have so many things on our to-do lists. How do we decide what matters most?


Yesterday Tyrone Danyel speaking at SA Equip said we must "stick to purpose. Link prayer to purpose. Link practice to purpose." We must live purpose driven lives.


As we quieten ourselves down over the weekend, let's once again ask God for clarity of His purpose for us (you). Then resolve to live accordingly.


Enjoy your weekend.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne
