“I am carrying on a great project and cannot go down. Why should the work stop while I leave it and go down to you?” – Nehemiah 6:3b
When doing a great work for God, it is important for you to keep your focus. However, it can be difficult to focus on what really matters, because you have so many distractions around you. Life can be like one big buffet of options.
What happens when you go to a buffet? The answer is pretty universal. You tend to fill your plate too full. It can be the same with the buffet of options before you in life. To avoid overfilling your life, you need to learn to evaluate every new opportunity based on how it affects God’s primary calling on your life.
If that new opportunity conflicts with that primary calling, then you need to say “no.” That means even saying “no” to things that are worthwhile, or that actually might be fun to be a part of.
Stay focused on your calling and let it help you determine whether to say “yes” or “no” to other opportunities that come along. Anything that interferes with fulfilling your calling should automatically bring a “no.”
