Steve Jobs' handbreadths

In a speech in 2005 the late Steve Jobs said, Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life........ your time is limited.

That was good counsel.

But this wasn't, Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle.

The message of the Bible is that the only way that we will be satisfied in is knowing Jesus Christ and if you haven't found Him yet keep looking. Don't settle for satisfaction in an iPhone, iPod, or macbook. It is found in being rescued from the guilt and power of sin by Jesus Christ's life death and resurrection. Once you know Him, like any good relationship it just gets better and better as the years roll on. Once you know Him any work will be great work for it can be done for Him

Like Steve Jobs - you and I will be dead soon. Just a few handbreadths. Now is the time to trust in Jesus Christ. Now is the time to raise yourself from the slumber of life and do something for Him. Don't settle for anything less.
