Text: Psalms 90:12

So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom
A wise man tells us in Ecclesiastes that there is time for everything. As Much as you want to get so many things done in the shortest time possible, the truth is that you cannot do everything.

A writer once Wrote that you cannot be Lord of everything, you can only be master of one thing. If there is any secret you must take with you every time , this is it:

you do not have time for everything.
If you do everything, you will end up not doing anything. In order to live a great and effective life, you need to become more focused. Focus requires you to fix your gaze on one thing at a time. I am not saying that you should do only one thing throughout the whole year, I am only saying that you should give your attention and efforts to one thing at a time, this way you will get more thing done than when you want to do everything at the same time.

We live in a noisy, very noisy world. I think there are more distractions in the world than there are people, you shouldn't become a victim of any form of distractions. A million and one things will seek to get your attention and if you are not careful you will discover that another year has ended just when you are settling down to it. Your strength can be focused on the one thing that is the goal at every point in time and this will yield good results. Our time on Earth is limited, and as true as this may be so many people still blow their time doing very little things.

Don't just use your energy and there are no results, no productivity. The goals you set are a picture of what you want your life to look like at the end of the year, I think it is worth all you can give to it. God is entrusting You with a lot, I am sure you don't want to let him down. The Psalmist in Psalms 90:12

“prayed so teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom”

Determine in your heart to set your goals and focus your life. Plan to spend your time doing things that will make a positive difference in your life and the lives of those around you. God bless You.

It's good to prepare our hearts for leadership, but this does not mean that we should forget the need to be humble. A humble leader is one that takes into consideration the needs of his flocks. Thanks for the fine read.

Supposing there was a group of people traveling about your area, led by a charismatic speaker who claims that the world is ending soon. He promises he alone can save you, but only if you sell your belongings, devote the rest of your life to him, and cut off family members who try to stop you.

He also wants to change your name, advises you to leave your home/job if necessary to follow him, and says that if you don’t love him more than your own family, you’re not worthy of him. What sort of group is that?

I quite disagree with your view about Christianity. Christians do not cut off family members that are not christians.

I don't even get the change your name part. Care to explain?

Most of the laws we see in our lands were gotten from the bible, like isolating people with contagious diseases for instance. The bible contains principles that are for our own benefits, that's why I believe in it. One does not even need to be a christian to benefit from the knowledge found in the scripture.

@alexbeyman Is there any group going through your area doing that? if yes, then I don't think you have to follow them but if not, then don't be disturbed. But in case of next time, you want to comment on a post, please try to say something related to the post... thereby you will be contributing to the post and might just end us helping others. thanks!

It is related. Jesus said and did all of those things in the Bible.

Yea Christ said and did all that. But if I may ask, what point are you trying to make? clearify me please.

Those are all the same things we today identify with cult leaders

Please help me get a clearer understanding what is happening here on steemit and how I can grow in the community.

There is no trick to it. I can't help you get rich. I wish I could. All I did was to work hard. I have been posting 4 items per day for 2 years.

what does it take for you to upvote and resteem someones post? cause I see you've got all the steem power to do that. its called helping someone grow. Thanks even as you give it a thought.

I don't want to help you grow. Your content promotes Christianity, which I regard as a contagious system of mind control. I will also not try to hinder you however.
