The Intent of This Blog

This blog is intended to be a tool for the growth of whoever wants to use it. It is a daily journal intended to help us be more introspective. Every day I will do my best to supply a motivational quote, a Bible verse, a vocabulary word, and a personal message from myself. Use these if you like as motivation to improve yourself. Then, simply answer the daily questions provided honestly and see if it has an impact on your life. Zig Ziglar said, "If you don't have daily objectives, you qualify as a dreamer." Lets not be just dreamers but doers. Remember Martin Luther King Jr not only had a dream, he also had an objective. Thanks for reading, Jake

Setting The Price

“A man who dares to wast one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.” - Charles Darwin

Have nothing to do with irreverent, silly myths. Rather train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds the promise for the present life and also for the life to come. - 1 Timothy 4:7-8

Price: “the cost at which something is obtained” - Merriam-Webster Dictionary

Can you measure what it will take to win? Can you calculate what success will cost? Can you add up what you will go through in this life? Life is a series of priceless moments. Some in a good way, some not good at all. There’s no way to put a price on a life. There’s no method for valuing the meaning of a moment. However, the way we treat our moments can affect their value. What we do with our time can greatly impact the significance of our lives. Whether we will be defeated or stand up again. Whether we use our time to make a difference or expect things to go on without us. It’s up to us. If you have kids, you have an influence on the future. If you have parents, you can put a value on history by learning from them. If you have a husband, a wife, a brother or a sister, a friend, neighbor, or otherwise; you can make a difference. We can’t put a price on life, but a difference is always valued. There are people and animals, flora and fauna, across the world that can value what you do. Not monetarily, not measurably, but instead, beyond measure. It may take changing our lives. It may not. It may just mean changing the way we do what we do. Working to the fullest at our current job. Doing our best when it doesn’t really matter too much. Giving someone a smile when none would ever be expected. It’s possible to be valuable right where you’re at. And it’s what’s in us that determines the value we can bring. Do we have a spirit for others? Do we feel the hurts and the needs of this world? Is our heart sensitive? Has Jesus changed our focus? He gave His life at a price of 30 pieces of silver, the price of a servant. But He was worth more than any price could pay. The words of the Hymn are true, “Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe.” Want your life to be valuable? Want to make a difference? Realize the price paid for you. That price was simply ALL. How much is All worth. What can we say except thank you?
