by Rick Warren
Don't lose sight of my words. Let them penetrate deep within your heart, for they bring life and radiant health to anyone who discovers their meaning. Proverbs 4:21-22 (NLT)
One of the pitfalls you may face as you fulfill your purpose in life is a temptation to take shortcuts.
In truth, these shortcuts will only get you off track. The shortcuts may be moral, ethical, spiritual, financial, or even relational.
But they will distract you from what God wants you to do in your life, eventually eating up your time, energy, resources, and creativity.
Shortcuts are always shortsighted. God wants you to stop being “absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ—that's where the action is. See things from his perspective”. (Colossians 3:2 MSG)
