Guest House Daily Reflection

Matthew 6:19-23
The Moral Bucket List speaks of two sets of virtues, the résumé virtues and the eulogy virtues. The résumé virtues are the skills you bring to the marketplace. The eulogy virtues are the ones that are talked about at your funeral, whether you were kind, brave, honest or faithful. Were you capable of love? Our culture and our educational systems spend more time teaching the skills and strategies you need for career success than the qualities you need to radiate that sort of inner light. Many people are clearer on how to build an external career than on how to build inner character.
