Matthew 6:10 “Your kingdom come… on earth as it is in heaven.” Every Saturday we host a church small group at our place. This week our ice breaker was “what do you consider your greatest achievement?” When it got to my turn I responded. “Like many of you have pointed out, I guess our achievements are all God’s so it’s hard to say exactly. But I can tell you when I feel the best. It’s when I pray for someone and I see a manifestation of the Holy Spirit, usually with tears rolling down their face. That’s when I feel most alive, and most excited about what I’m doing.” At my venture firm Amasia, we have made millions of dollars for many different investors. Most of them are super appreciative of the work we do, but I’m pretty sure none of them have cried out of gratitude. This doesn’t mean that money’s not important, or that I’m in the wrong job. But it does mean that through my work, my relationships, and everything I do, my focus should be on bringing God’s presence on earth like it is in heaven. That’s when I’m most excited because that’s what God’s will is in my life (and probably most of our lives). Lord I pray that you continue to align my thoughts, my words and my actions to your will. There’s nothing I need except you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
