One Plus One  

Oh Wow! I Solved It!  

        

Every morning, I watch Rabbi Daniel Lapin's Ancient Jewish Wisdom. You see everybody needs a Rabbi according to him. I'm glad that one day I happened upon him. The wisdom Rabbi Lapin and his wife, Susan, shares have been illuminating.

 

Recently while watching a segment of the show Rabbi Lapin made a statement that ignone plus oneited a reaction in me. He stated that there is no word for retirement in the Hebrew language. Wow! Where did we get the concept that after working so many years we should pack up, leave and be put out to pasture? Unfortunately most people can't wait for this life of leisure.

 

I say unfortunately, because in many instances they don't have a plan for this season of their lives. All they know is that they are ready to retire and they are ready to stop working. In many instances, they stop dreaming and they stop imagining a brighter future.

 

Studies have shown that soon after retirement, unfortunately many leave this world. In essence, their purpose for living ceased to have meaning. We are creatures created for a purpose and inherent in that purpose is for us to work and serve others. When we no longer have purpose in our lives we slowly waste away. Yes, purpose is inherent in what we do for others. It is more rewarding than money. Now, don't get me wrong. I value money, but money is a by-product of fulfilling your purpose.

 

Unfortunately in western society, most notably America, once a person reaches a certain age we want to put them out to pasture. We deem them useless.

 

Retirement becomes an inward "me" issue. I'm going to do this. . . I'm going to do that is the refrain echoed. We are created to be problem solvers. Every invention started as a problem that someone put their physical and mental inertia to solve. The conveniences of life exemplify how much we have reaped from them embracing the problem and solving it. From airplanes, to the Internet, to nails, even post it notes, someone envisioned a way to solve a problem that not only benefited themselves but others as well.

 

You see, Kingdom Solutionists move beyond their selves to affect the greater good. They understand that they were created so when it is all said and done and the last breath escapes from their nostrils, they would have made their mark.

 

Steve Job's sister stated in his eulogy that before he drifted off into eternity he exclaimed, "Oh wow! Oh wow! Oh wow!" No doubt in that instance, he knew that his contribution to humankind would reverberate for years, decades and even centuries to come. It exceeded his existence. In his non-existence he is immortalized because he passionately solved a problem to make life better for all of humankind.

 

How about you? Before that last breath escapes from your nostrils will you be able to exclaim, "Oh wow! Oh wow! Oh wow!" Because you will know that you maximized every effort to solve a problem. You will know that you did not retire on life. You will know that you had left this world a better place and your problem-solving contributions will reverberate beyond your fleshly existence.

SCRIPTURES  

  

A fool folds his hands and wastes away. Eccl 4:5 (GW)

 

At last I have seen what is good and beautiful: It is to eat and drink and to enjoy the good in all our hard work under the sun during the brief lives God gives us. That is our lot {in life}. Eccl 5:18 (GW)

 

But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God. Acts 20:24 (KJV)

 

And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it. Psalms 90:17 (KJV)

 

Then he used this illustration. He said, "A rich man had land that produced good crops. He thought, 'What should I do? I don't have enough room to store my crops.' He said, 'I know what I'll do. I'll tear down my barns and build bigger ones so that I can store all my grain and goods in them. Then I'll say to myself, "You've stored up a lot of good things for years to come. Take life easy, eat, drink, and enjoy yourself."' "But God said to him, 'You fool! I will demand your life from you tonight! Now who will get what you've accumulated?' That's how it is when a person has material riches but is not rich in his relationship with God." Luke 12:16-21 (GW)

 

I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. Psalms 37:25 (KJV)

 

 

PRAY

 

Father  

Retirement is not an option for me. There is too much for me to do in making this world a better place. I am a Kingdom Solutionist created to passionately solve problems. I realize that this world is more than about me retiring from a job, it is about me passionately living until I have taken my last breath. With that last breath, I will know that I fulfilled my God-given assignment in the earth realm. The magnitude of my life will be experienced for many days after I no longer exist in this world. 

 Amen
