Scripture is very clear that we should give our all in whatever we are doing. We should work hard, have integrity, and respect others. But what good is it if we are super successful by the world’s standards and miss out on our true purpose. Having a relationship with Christ and following Him is more important than any worldly accomplishment. Strive for greatness in all you do but keep the main thing the main thing.
What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Mark 8:36

Clayton suffered a minor concussion, but Caleb suffered a severe traumatic brain injury. Caleb was not expected to live the night of the accident, and if he did live, was not expected to live any kind of a normal life. God chose not only to spare Caleb’s life, but also to miraculously begin healing him. For the last 2 years, Caleb has been a walking/talking miracle!
