There are times in life when we can be so driven to achieve certain things that we miss what is truly important. While there are several things that I hope to accomplish during my time on this earth, there is one thing that stands out the most to me.
Like many of you I have a vocation that requires me to do a lot of things that I feel are important. Indeed, many of the things that I am seeking to accomplish. However, if I fail to be the husband and father that my wife and daughters need, then all of the other perceived successes in life will be of little value.
While I believe that God has called me to the vocation in which I serve, I also believe that He has called me first and foremost to a relationship with Him, and then in relationship to my family.
Perhaps, I am alone in trying to balance my time with my family along with the responsibilities of my job, but I don't think so.
What are some ways that you seek to keep yourself focused upon those who matter most?
