The One Thing
Have you ever seen the movie “City Slickers”? If you have not seen it, it’s a must rent. Great movie. In one classic scene, Billy Crystal and Jack Palance are having a conversation along the trail.
Palance asks Crystal, “Do you know what the secret of life is?”
Crystal responds “No, what?”
Palance holds up his gloved index finger and says “This”.
Crystal wisecracks, “Your finger?”
Palance continues, “One thing. Just one thing. You stick to that and everything else don’t mean nothin!”
Crystal asks, “That’s great, but what’s the one thing?”
Then Palance gives Crystal the nugget of wisdom: “That’s what you’ve gotta figure out”.
I won’t spoil the rest of the movie for those that have not seen it. Since I am usually the one sharing all of the thoughts I have in my head, I figured tonight I would post one for you to consider. What is your “One Thing”? Or, have you figured it out. Maybe it’s changed in the past week, month, year. Or maybe it is getting ready to change. Whatever it is, I can assure you that my “one thing” will never change. Like the movie says, when I stick to that one thing…everything else don’t mean nothin! Oh, believe me, everything else feeds off of my one thing. Matter of fact, I am convinced that without my one thing, I would have nothing! So what is my “One thing”? Here is a hint… Philippians 3:7-17
If you want to drop me an email and let me know what your one thing is, I would love to hear it!
