Keep it basic. Love your wife. Provide for the kids. Do your job well. Love your neighbor. Floss.
Do what God put in front of you to do. Stay at your post. Love your neighbor. John asks how we can love God, whom we have not seen, when we don’t love our neighbor, whom we have seen (1 John 4:20). Let us take that form of argument—how can you love the future, which you have not seen, unless you love the present, which you have seen? The answer is plain—you cannot.
Faithfulness in your assigned duties is connected to the grand things. Attempted faithfulness in the grand scheme of things (as you conceive them to be) is the sure road to faithlessness in the present.
