“Pursue righteousness and a godly life, along with faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness.”
Work can feel like a perpetual pursuit of “always something”. It can be the pursuit of the next deal, the next dollar, the next customer, the next supplier, the next ingredient, the next promotion or even the next job. Business, by necessity is perpetual. It has to be otherwise companies stagnate and then die. The perpetual pursuit can be a real drag or it can be invigorating. That’s a choice of attitude we each personally can make.
God also asks us to perpetually pursue Him. When we do, He doesn’t move away from pursuit. He defies all physics and logic in that He comes closer and closer to us the more we pursue Him. There’s nothing stopping or holding us back from getting closer to Him today more than yesterday. It is our choice.
