You see this man in the picture? He is MY assignment. Other than loving God, this man is the most important assignment I have here on this earth. To love him...to serve him....to think about him first....to share moments with. You see, jobs will come and go, friends/acquaintances will come and go, even our children will grow up and move on but this one person remains. A gift from the Father.
So, my question is, I wonder if he feels like he's my greatest assignment? If you asked him today, I am not exactly sure what his answer would be and that strikes some fear. Because the truth is, there are days that everything else gets placed ahead of him. I have distractions that pull me far from this assignment...kids, work, activities, other relationships etc... Can you relate? There are days where he doesn't look like my top priority and I don't like that!
If someone asked your man (or your wife....thank you to our male readers) what your priorities are, would they make the top 5....top 10?
At the end of this life I want to do this assignment well. I want my focus and attention on this God-given assignment to be pleasing to the Lord. So this week I hope you will join me in a challenge or an assignment if you will. Slow down and intentionally make your man THE assignment of the week. So that by Friday, his answer to the question would be different!
