There’s an ancient Indian proverb that states, Certain things catch your eye, but pursue only those that capture the heart. Many things will capture our eye in this new year. Stock prices, news reports, cloudy winter days, the first daffodil of spring. It’s tempting to follow after those things. To put it another way, it’s tempting to let such things be the focus of our time, our energy and our resources.
But what are those things that capture your heart. Sharing a kind word, making a small difference in the world, contributing to the beauty of our world, being a disciple of Christ. These things can and should be the focus of our time, energy and resources. These things, these actions, leave a lasting legacy.
As we journey through this year, look for what captures your heart.
