We’ve all heard it, “You can’t see the forest for the trees.” No matter how deeply you look at anything, it’s important to step back from it in order to see it more clearly.
I just read a post by Seth Godin, Roads or Buildings? Godin explains that in the past 150 years, virtually every building changed in the city of Boston. But virtually every road remains the same.
So, it begs the question: “What do you see?”
When others look at your life’s work, will they see buildings or roads? What is the more permanent impression you are making on the world. More importantly, how will your life count for eternity?
Will God say, “Well done” when you come to the end of your days?
Step back and look.
“The Lord your God has blessed you in all the work of your hands. He has watched over your journey through this vast wilderness. These forty years the Lord your God has been with you, and you have not lacked anything.”
Deuteronomy 2:7 NIV
