No I'm not dead. Just distracted. Enough said.
Here are a few things that great men have told me recently. It's a lot, but pick and choose as you will:
-I want a faith fuelled by saying yes.
-Get up tomorrow morning and do one thing you won't forget.
-We live in stages. Beloved Son, Cowboy, Warrior, Lover, and King
-Milen, a habit producing chemical, forms more in your twenties than any other time of life.
-What makes your twenties a success...intentionality.
-Read about George Washington. He won all the battles that must be won.
-Do something hard every day. Wake up early, run until you throw up, forgive someone.
-Choose time over treasure. Time is the greatest nonrenewable resource. Spend your money on time because days turn into decades.
-Choose who over what. The most important questions in life start with "who." Marry well because it influences everything.
-Choose the gospel over everything. The Bible isn't about me. Apply Jesus to my story.
-"Make a great shoe and sell it for a great price."-Luther
-Sanctification should always begin by looking at justification.
-The gospel is not an evangelical tool. It is life.
-Know yourself. Go to a counsellor.
-Lead others. It must go in that order.
-It takes a band of brothers to push you to do hard things.
