We need to stop setting goals
and personal standards, based…
on the foolishness of our fears;
Human expectations, dumb notions
and the fickleness of desire is
no way to live. Measuring years

by our accomplishments is silly;
someone in the future will either
outdo us or destroy our efforts.
Can we create a meaningful legacy
that touches lives with God’s Love
or even move beyond… self-comfort?

Author notes

Inspired by:
Luke 12:16-23; Eccl 3:20-22  and

If God always met our expectations,
He’d never be able to exceed them.
–Steven Furtick
