Likes or Lives?

There seems to be an unspoken fight.

Who can appear to be “more” of this or that.

Who seems to love their life more, be the most confident, love Jesus the most, have the best family, have the most clients, have the most answers, enjoy life the most……………………………………………….and seem to have no struggle.

Its a bunch of bull crap.

Its something that I continually have to check myself on….the temptation to put on a big show...or actually be effective, productive, and real. Which will I choose?

There are a lot of jobs out there, that aren’t the most amazing (from the outside).

There are ministries out there that do not involve standing before a crowd, and receive VERY little public recognition.

Some of the most valuable relationships in your life, and could never be justly be explained or displayed on social media.

Some of the most special moments, can not be replayed.

And sometimes your most beautiful hair days cannot be accurately captured on a selfie.

Does this mean that these jobs, ministries, relationships, moments, and beautiful hair days are less valuable? Do they loose their worth because they do not continually generate applause or “likes”?

Does your life have less value because you haven’t discovered the tact to generate public interest into what matters to YOU?

No.

At the end of our lives we will be faced with the effect we ACTUALLY made in this world, the lives we impacted, the people we loved, and the person really became.

Somethings you do will receive a lot of recognition- and it should.

But our goal should be to be truly effective, even if its never seen.

And no picture was ever taken.

How you appear does not have an impact, who you ARE has the impact.
