We must always remain vigilant and discern all matters with the utmost care. Having moral integrity and virtuous character are paramount in order to be attuned to God’s way and will for our purposeful lives! He didn’t create us as the centerpiece of His creation out of infinite love so that we could take it all for granted or kick back and enjoy the ride!
We must be willing to utilize all of the opportunity He has afforded to us and be thrilled to do our very best in all we do each day! That is I believe how heaven will feel; like everything is so wonderfully in harmony and perfection; one continuous miraculous blessing and gift all stemming from His endless love.
This article got me thinking of some useful Scriptures that I present here.
Luke 12:48 “But the one who did not know, and did what deserved a beating, will receive a light beating. Everyone to whom much was given, of him much will be required, and from him to whom they entrusted much, they will demand the more.”
John 15:2 “Every branch on me not yielding fruit he takes away, and that which yields fruit he purges that it may bring forth much fruit.”
Those two passages tell us clearly that God not only wants us to live up to our potential and make good use of the gifts and opportunities He bestows upon us for the purpose of accomplishing the good He put us on earth for to begin with; but that He requires it of us! I believe we need to learn that it’s so important to show our heavenly Father how much we appreciate this beautiful gift of love that He gives to us freely in order that we will truly reflect His love, being made in His likeness; and to then demonstrate that we belong to Him, thusly deserving Heaven.
This from the book of Luke puts it all in perspective. And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” 26 He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How do you read it?”
27 And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” 28 And he said to him, “You have answered correctly; do this, and you will live.” (Luke 10:25-42)

Given a choice, what would you avoid.
Silly mistakes or major destruction.
Personally, I would prefer to stay alert and enjoy success and not loss.
I remember my first job ever.
I was supposed to learn a bit of accounting, but I did not take it too seriously. To facilitate my on-boarding the company arranged an experienced Chartered Accountant, a friend of the business owner from another city and sent him to train me to manage the accounts.
Youthful, with no prior experience I did not realise this individual’s expertise nor willingness to coach an inexperienced new employee and treated the incident with a matter-of-fact approach.
After the first lesson, I did not get what he explained because I obviously did not immerse myself into what was shared.
So, the expert tore the page from the accounting book on which he had done the explanation. He then went ahead to…
