How Are You Living Your Life?

I hope you are concerned about your generation, and are actively doing something to touch lives, change hearts, and helping make our world a better place - one life at a time!

Some people do nothing, or next to nothing to make a difference, and it has a negative impact on us all, whether we know it or not. 

My advice to you: Don't become a statue. Be someone who is worth knowing. Interestingly, we raise statues to people who have accomplished something significant. Yet there is nothing that represents stagnation more than a statue. They don't move, they don't think, they don't do ANYTHING! 

Indecision in our lives can have the same results. Not knowing what's the best path to take in life, some people take no path at all, and end up stagnating. There are many reasons a person can stagnate. Fear is a leader in this condition, as well as lack of confidence, lack of vision, and as I have already stated, indecision. 

You've probably heard the saying, "Do something even if its wrong." While I certainly don't encourage you to do that, I do understand where the idea originated. After watching people do nothing long enough, the person who penned those words probably blurted out their advice from sheer frustration! 

While the overall wisdom of those words is definitely wrong, I understand the intention behind them. Doing nothing in life will result in being stagnant, and you will end up joining the statues of the world before you're dead! 

In the family, in the church, and in our world, we need people who are DOERS - people of action - those who will help do the right thing, in a timely manner, and as a result, will help transform this generation!

I don't want to see anyone remembered like the man in the following story. 

"There was a very cautious man
Who never laughed or played
He never risked, he never tried,
He never sang or prayed.
And when he on day passed away,
His insurance was denied,
For since he never really lived,
They claimed he never really died."

Many choices can lead to stagnancy. It's good to consider your next step in life, just don't make it permanent. We need people of action to stand up and be counted in the family - in the church - and in our world! Strong men and women; people of direction in God, people who deeply care and SHOW it. People who aren't afraid to get their hands dirty helping others, and who will lay their personal dreams down to help fulfill someone else's.

Are you THAT type of person - someone who looks at the bigger picture of life, and determines in your heart that you are going to give yourself to make your world, church and family better?

I hope so, because we NEED people like YOU - people who will help us fulfill the call of God "to change the nations" - one life at a time. Today is not a day for indecision. Today is a day to shake off the pigeons, and do something - to help others discover the joy of Jesus' love, to lift weary hands, and benefit many others, in numerous ways!

I pray you will discover the joy and wisdom of action over inaction - and as you do - that you will make a real-time difference, in real-life people's lives every day!
