What does love really look like?
- God often reminds me that we cannot forget love is not about selfish gain, it’s about sacrifice & selflessness. I’m convinced our understanding of the word “love” is demonstrated in how we think about, value, and treat/care for those people that others may consider not as smart, classy, organized, wise, insightful, unique, or special as we are…those people that may never benefit us in any way…those people that may never be able to repay us for the love & care we give.
Everyday Life Reflections:
- Anger may be justifiable, but you can’t win with hostility and anger. Love is your weapon against injustice.
- We have to pick our battles. What injustices are truly worth fighting for?
- Organization is key to time management. So to better manage our time, we must first organize better.
- Rudeness is the product of self-righteousness. You can’t expect to gain influence when are think you are better than everyone else. Self-righteousness is the stem of the rudeness tree and on that tree grows the fruit of failure.
- Concerning yourself with trying to be popular amounts to surrounding yourself with people who truly have no concern for you. It’s a worthless pursuit.
- You can’t gain momentum or expect your life/ministry/job to be BETTER until you are willing to CHANGE something. Momentum that comes with positive results doesn’t come by chance…it comes by your willingness to change.
- Simple equation: bad+ attitude= undesired outcome. You can’t expect to get anywhere with an attitude that stinks.
- Despite contrary belief, you dont have to ask for everyone else’s permission to live right & lead by example…you just do it.
- You’ve got to be living it before you can expect others to be living it. You’ve got to be the example.
- Before you can challenge others with a thought or idea, you’ve got to be willing to challenge yourself first. You can’t expect someone else to do something you aren’t willing to do.
- Leadership isn’t being the best, smartest or coolest. The leader is often the one willing to give up the most for the sake of everyone else. It’s a sacrificial thing.
