BUCKET LIST

Jennifer Cole

Tell those who are rich not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which will soon be gone, but their pride and trust should be in the living God who always richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment. Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and should give happily to those in need, always being ready to share with others whatever God has given them. By doing this they will be storing up real treasure for themselves in heaven – it is the only safe investment for eternity! And they will be living a fruitful Christian life down here as well.

1 Timothy 6:17-19, TLB

Have you made a bucket list? Meaning...before you “kick-the-bucket”...what do you want to do? Start? Finish? Try? If you’ve never made that kind of list, take a moment to think about what you might put on it. What kinds of things would make it onto your list?

I believe there are two categories that should both be represented on our bucket lists. They are effectiveness and enjoyment -- both are mentioned in the verse above. Let’s take a look at the importance of each of them:

Effectiveness! God wants you to invest your life. What will your life amount to? Who have you helped? Influenced for eternity? I hope that you've already made a decision to invest your temporary life -- time, energy, money, gifts, talents -- into eternal things. I hope you are living a purposeful life of "no regrets" to glorify the Lord -- being rich in good deeds, generous and willing to share Christ and your abundance with others. 

Enjoyment! God wants to bless your life! God gives us all things richly to enjoy. Sometimes, we have a hard time accepting the fact that the Lord wants us to enjoy a blessed life with no apologies -- but He does! I have found that when we live for effectiveness then He also blesses us with enjoyment. Aren’t you thankful for the goodness of God?! When we seek first His kingdom and His priorities -- He gives us richly all kinds of things for our enjoyment...family, friends, mountains, rivers, oceans, airplanes, cars, motorcycles, boats, beaches, moonlight, food, drink, flowers, jewelry, shoes, clothing, sports, travel…and so much more.

>>So, the idea is to live for effectiveness and gain enjoyment! 

If this is not quite how your bucket list (or your daily priority list!) looks right now...then I encourage you to spend some time with the Lord getting stirred up in this area. There’s just no better life than one aligned with Christ’s priorities! If you’re not sure where to start on that journey, pray this out and follow His leading!

Say This: “Father, help me to invest my life into things of eternal value. Help me to love, serve and give to others, sharing the love of Christ everywhere I go. Help me to align my priorities with Yours. And thank You that as I seek first Your kingdom, You give me richly all kinds of things for my enjoyment! Thank You for your goodness to me! In Jesus' Name. Amen."
