Do you really love the life you are living? Many of us are surprised to find that we are thrown into a life we never imagined! Until you love what you do, you miss the chance to live an inspired life. How do you know if you were built to lead if you do not love what you are doing so much that you cannot wait to get out of bed each day? However, you do not just love what you do accidentally; it is a function of another love affair that goes on every day.
There are probably three things in your life that have the capacity to make you love what you do. Surprisingly, those things do not include your bank account, your fame, your power or the admiration of others. Most likely, if you are actually living a life you love, you are really in love with three things: your family, your faith and your employees.
Your family is the rock that keeps you grounded to earth. Where would we be without our wives and children? Families give us a reason to work hard. We want to inspire them, teach them and provide them with everything they want.
Your faith should be another love affair in your life and is your guiding compass to making good decisions. What would I do without the Lord to turn to? Where would I be without the Scripture to guide me? Better men than myself have lost their path due to a lack of faith. In fact, Jesus himself said, “And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?” (Mark 8:36).
