Aspirations

Something to think about.

Aspirations

For who is greater, he who sits at the table, or he who serves? Is it not he who sits at the table? Yet I am among you as the One who serves. Luke 22:27

We aspire to great things, both in the church and out. We dream great dreams; we ingest inspiration as if it were food in our quest for accomplishment. With the mad rush of our lives and culture, we miss the essence of greatness. Our highest calling, our highest aspiration will never be higher, greater, more impactful, than emulating Christ. He exemplified the highest calling of man, not for His benefit but for ours. Our highest calling regardless of our gifts is to serve each other. In doing so, we exemplify Christ and are recognized as great.

About Ruben

I am the owner of a custom furniture shop in Orlando, Florida. I had a heart attack back in 2010. As a result of complications from the heart attack I almost died . The road to recovery took about eighteen months and even now I still have issues to deal with. As a result of almost dying many things have changed. Most notably my concept of time. By that I mean that I am acutely aware of my mortality, not morbidly but realistically. Before the heart attack I thought I would make it to 70's, 80'S or as my mother into 90's but now I realize everyday is a gift. I don't take it for granted. That is why I write I have something to say and I want to say it, before I can't say it anymore.
