Doing something that matters is a concept that stirs in the heart of every person. But “what matters” is a subject of relativity. What matters to you may not matter to me and what matters to me, frankly, you possibly couldn’t give a rip about. I’ve often felt like things I do don’t matter. Some days I look at what I’ve done and think, “Did that really matter? Did what I do today actually make a difference?”
Yeah, I checked off my to-do list and there’s a certain sense of accomplishment but did it matter? Again relativity comes into the picture. I fed the cat, that mattered to the fluff ball. I encouraged a friend, that mattered to them. I think at some level, everything we do matters. It certainly matters to God.
“And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men,” -Colossians 3:23 NKJ
In closing, do something that matters today but do it out of who you are not to build your sense of self-worth. Everything matters.
Have you found yourself feeling like what you do doesn’t matter?
