Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him (Colossians 3:17 NIV).
Bob Buford calls this stage of life “halftime.” In sports, halftime is when the teams regroup, catch their breath, go back out, and do better in the second half. Buford says that the key to getting through a midlife crisis is shifting our focus from success to significance.
I propose that the key to lasting significance lies in meaningful relationships—relationships with God, family, and friends. It’s found in doing your best with the gifts and talents God has given you. It’s found in living life God’s way with godly character.
Midlife is a key time to get those things right, before the second half begins. If you’re at midlife, seek to shift your focus from success to significance. If you do, your second half can be even better than your first.
