Your Sweet Spot - January 5, 2024

Scripture says, “There is nothing better for a man than to eat and drink and tell himself that his labor is good” (Ecclesiastes 2:24 NASB). I just heard a groan. “But Max, my work is simply that—work! It pays my bills.” “Job satisfaction? I have no clue how to find my skill.” “Honor God? After the mess I’ve made of my life?”

Here’s the big idea: Use your uniqueness to make a big deal out of God every day of your life.

You see at the convergence of all three—what you do, why you do it, and where you do it—is the cure for the common life. Your sweet spot! You have one, you know. Your life has a plot; your years have a theme. You can do something in a manner that no one else can. And when you find it and do it, another sweet spot is discovered.
