I shall pass through this world but once. Any good there that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again. –Mahatma Gandhi
This quotation helps me understand more regarding our topic last week in ORDEV-C class about Life and Time. We’ve learned that Life is Time, a span of moment that represents the life we enjoyed. We’ve also learned that time can be managed and so as life. However time is limited. Money can be regained, but time cannot, and so life. In that minute of our discussion, we have realized the true value of time and the need to set goals-our life goals.
We have always been told about setting goals and what we can do in order to achieve it. Solicit advises perhaps from our grandparents in pursuing excellence and gathering tips and recommendations from successful people. Yes, reflecting on these tips will greatly help us to achieve our goals. But the most important part is to know first your life purpose. The purposes God created you and not just existed.
We are “called according to His purpose,” not according to the need, or the fact that the door is open, or that our talent will be appreciated and well rewarded. Our vision must fulfill our God-ordained destiny, nothing else. But isn’t okay to make plans and set goals? Yes, but your plans and goals should come out of a vision that God has given you. However, when you know God has given you a vision for your life, you trust Him, even when you can’t see any way to bring it to pass.
In your journey to life, you may face many obstacles-the giants in your life. But the good thing is that we can manage it. As early as now, learn to prioritize what is important as what I’ve quoted above “…let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.” In the best-selling book in the world that inspires a lot of people, it says “Faith without action is dead”. Same as if we just wrote our life goals but do nothing about it, it’s useless.
