A bucket list is described as a list of things a person wants to do before death. The adventurous aspire to climb the highest mountain, hike the roughest trail, swim the widest sea, or bike across the country. Others want to travel to exotic locations, tour historical buildings, or see work by renowned artists. Although different, they have a common link. All are self-centered desires.

Apostle Paul admonished the Christian church in Galatia to add something new to the top of their bucket lists.

Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith. (Galatians 6:10, Holy Bible, New King James).

Revisit your bucket list. Add “Be a do-gooder” to the top. It will keep your priorities straight.

Prayer: There are so many things I want to do, Lord. Help me forget my desires and arrange my priorities to first do good to those who serve You. Amen.
