Great Questions

Here's a copy/paste of an email I sent to some friends tonight. I thought I'd share it here too ;)
Hey Gals! 
Here's a few questions I came across tonight in an email I got that were so helpful to me. Just great reminders to think through to make sure we are making the most of our time for the Lord  and doing what HE wants us to be doing. I know for me every few weeks it seems that life is changing and new circumstances or challenges arise. It's SO helpful to STOP and bring it all before the Lord, check my heart and mind and make sure that I'm being intentional and purposeful, not just going on auto pilot. I love the book that they came from, "Shopping for Time", it has radically changed my thinking and convicted me deeply. I think most of you have read it. But if you haven't it's wonderful and I highly recommend it. I hope these questions are helpful for you and may be helpful to pass along in your ministry too! 
Much love, Carly

Do you plan ahead to maximize your fruitfulness each day, or do you simply let life happen?

Do you make choices based on Scripture or on what feels good at the moment?

Do you strategize to use your talents to bless your family and church, or do you employ them primarily for your own personal fulfillment?

Do you evaluate every opportunity in light of biblical priorities, or do you do whatever it takes to get ahead?

Do you consider whom God would have you serve, or do you try to please everyone all the time?
