I was thinking about the cherished moments I was having this Labor Day and how I wished those moments with my wife in the perfect place feeling everything is going right, feeling that it would be so good if that Grace could stay with us forever.
It will happen that those moments will last forever, when we get to heaven, and when we have those moments return in life in our closeness to Christ. I was feeling that deep love I have for my precious wife and thinking I should make sure that I have that same deep eternal love for God as well, to Value God Deeply.
We may, when congratulating ourselves or appreciating... we may say those expressions "Job well done," or "That'll be fine."-- While we should not judge and positive feedback encourages, we should also realize that the work God wants us to do, if we realize this in our humility, is never to limit itself or fully qualify as completely done, but to continue and to need prayer to make it ever better, ever improving, ever on our journey toward closeness to Christ. That gives us our purpose in the spiritual sense. Lack of purpose is the real reason for depression, I speak from my experience and witnessing, and lack of real purpose is the reason why we sometimes lack the value of our lives and the lives of others.
