You don’t do well because you major in minor things

One of the distinctions I have never heard anywhere else is this “Majoring in minors” ((There is a very interesting article I just read while I was looking for some picture for this article. It brings up an area of life where people major in minors: religion. I am quoting it here fore you, the bible part:

Why Do We Major in the Minors?
from R.C. Sproul on

The Pharisees distorted the emphasis of biblical righteousness to suit their own behavioral patterns of self-justification. Jesus frequently confronted the Pharisees on this point. Jesus said to them, “You tithe mint and dill and cumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness” (Matt. 23:23a). On numerous occasions, Jesus acknowledged that the Pharisees scrupulously obeyed some points of the law. They paid their tithes, they read their Scriptures, they did a host of things the law required-and Jesus commended them for their actions, saying, “These you ought to have done” (Matt. 23:23b). However, it was the emphasis that was out of kilter. They scrupulously tithed, but in doing so they used their obedience to this lesser matter as a cloak to cover up their refusal to obey the weightier matters of justice and mercy. That distortion occurs today.
)) distinction. It’s from the 67 steps.
It is about choosing to invest time, energy, money into something that is not going to return a big benefit.
If we look at any area of life, the biggest difference between astute people and the rest is how they invest their time, energy, and money.
Obviously, if you fritter away your time, energy, and money on frivolous or low-benefit activities, your life will be below what it could be.
