There is a constant struggle within all of us to fully give and commit our lives to God or choose to live our own way. We constantly forget that we are on this earth to do the Master's bidding.
Sometimes we act in such an apathic, arrogant way, choosing how, where and with whom we are going to live. We act as if we are on this earth to satisify our needs, our pleasures, our wants, and entertain ourselves until we die.
But we are on this earth to satisfy God's needs, God's pleasures, God's wants and praise him until we go from this life to the next life.
As Rick Warren says, "Life is not about me, life is about God."
