It's honestly not something I think of too often. I watched a video today that is below this post that changed my perspective. Not a lot of things are that powerful. And the video isn't "blow you out of the water" spectacular. It's simple. Francis Chan has a simple idea he is trying to get across.
I'm going to be completely honest here and that is kinda hard because I feel stupid for feeling the way I do sometimes. Often I stress about the stuff of this world. What I have, how I look, how others see me and my family and my house and my blah blah blah. Sometimes I actually worry that I will miss out on something or lose friends if I'm not of this world. How lame right? Well I told you I was gonna be honest. I need to be more like Paul in the sense that I keep my eyes forward on the finish line.
