I just wanted to share something with you this week. I think one of the best things that we have in our favor are the relationships that we OWN. One thing I want to challenge each of you with, including myself, is to be present in every moment of our lives… RELATIONALLY! BELIEVER, YOU HAVE THE ONLY ANSWER TO THE GREATEST NEED IN ALL OF HUMANITY! Can you imagine what it would be like if we took every relationship that we OWN seriously? Our goal, and more importantly, our calling, is to reach people far from God.
Dan Cathy, son of Truett Cathy, recently wrote these words:
“During a recent conversation about goals and dreams and “what’s next,” I heard someone say, “You know, no one washes a rental car. You have to own it to care that much…” How true is that for your life this week? Are you invested in your work, family and relationships to the point that you’ll go the extra mile to make them that much better? Sometimes we get caught up in the idea that today is only temporary, so we just muddle through until it’s over. We believe that our real lives will begin when we’re finally able reach our goals and stop working towards someone else’s agenda.
But, I’d like to encourage you to take OWNERSHIP this week. Believe that today is the beginning of something unique and special and yours… Something you can invest in, take pride in and share with others.”
May we all be present in every moment of every day. I used to think that you had to be special for God to use you, and now I know that you only have to be present. There is no need to wait on some magical plan to show up from Heaven on your doorstep… Just go love EVERYBODY!
Have a great week. After all, you OWN IT.
