What’s Next?

2 Sam 1-2, 1 Chr 11, Ps 96 & 106, Acts 21

America is the land of opportunity.  Anything is possible here.  You have the freedom to choose who to be and how to do it.  And, we have all chosen.  Some of us choose success, while others will choose family and children.  Still others will commit to community service, political power, or maybe leisure and pleasure.  What have you chosen?

Its easy to look back upon our lives and evaluate choices that we have made.  From some, we brim with pride while others bring deep regret.  Looking backward is easy.  Looking forward requires a bit more courage.  But, we all have to ask “what’s next?”  What will mark the next 10, 20 or 30 years of your life?  Will you choose exploits in the land of opportunity, or something else?   Before you choose, consider Paul’s response in s in Acts 20.  He says:

But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God. Acts 20:24 (NLT)
