Do Your Best and Forget The Rest

If you have ever seen this pet commercial you have felt bad for these animals. They work on our emotions and it makes me want to buy them all. If you didn't feel bad when you watched it I will have a special prayer blog for you later. These and other commercials like it make you feel that you aren't doing enough in your life to help others in need. I know your busy and that your life is chaotic. You have just enough time to work, spend time with family, sleep, serve at church, and sleep more. I want you to know that it's OK. You can't do everything! There is only 24 hours in a day, as Tony Horton says, "Do your best and forget the rest!"

You can't do everything, but you can do something. In your busy day, you will come into contact with many that need your help (on the job doesn't count). You can't help them all, but pick one and serve them. In Acts 3 Peter and John are going to worship in the temple and there begging is a crippled man. Peter tells the man that he had no money but then in the name of Christ healed the man. Peter didn't heal the man and give him money, because he couldn't. He did what he could. In the same way as you go through your day you may not be able to do it all, but you can share the love of Christ. Whether its going to your hospital and clearing out the sick, or putting up someone's grocery cart for them. When you notice someone in the office is a little down and out, take time to talk to them about life and not work. Show those around you Christ with your words and actions. You can't do everything, but you can do something.
