“Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”” Luke 6:38 NKJV
For most people living at 50% is just fine with them. Just getting by, just barely making it, just skimming by, the list goes on and on. They settle for where they are and certainly don’t want to put forth any effort to make their next better than their last. They do everything half hearted, from work, to their marriage and family, to their possessions. They care just enough to have things but not enough to take care of them. They care just enough to be married but not enough to invest in their marriage or take time for their spouse. They care just enough to have children but no enough to spend time raising them or helping them become great kids. They care just enough to have a job but not enough to do a good job or even strive for a better position. Unfortunately, this spreads into their walk with Jesus. They care just enough to say they know Him but not enough to spend time with Him. Many people know about Jesus, few truly take the time to know Him. Are you living life halfhearted, only giving yourself to what is most important to you. Are you settling for just what comes your way or are you striving to be the best you that God created you to be. Is 50% all you have, or should you be striving for 110%. With Jesus there is always more! Don’t stop and settle, give Him your absolute best!
