Whose Agenda Is It Anyway?

The brilliant Seth Godin recently posited that many of us no longer have our own agenda. He contends all our planning is really done with someone else in mind.

My plans are frustrated more than I like. The less I fret about disruption and go with the revised flow, the better things seem to work out over time. It’s a reminder that my plans are not as good as His plans.

My friend Katie Goldberg recently tweeted: “So often I exchange obedience for sacrifice and think my sacrifice is pleasing to God. It’s not.”

How wise for a young person.

Obedience to God’s agenda may not make life any easier, but it does make it richer.
