Chasing Lions

I read this at the end of our 10:30 service this past week as a teaser of what was to come in the next weeks at GCC.  I have been inundated with requests for the text so, here you go:

Quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death.  Set God-sized goals. Pursue God-ordained passions. Go after a dream that is destined to fail unless God intervenes.

Keep asking questions.

Keep making mistakes.

Keep seeking God.

Stop pointing out problems and become part of the solution. Stop repeating the past and start creating the future. Stop playing it safe and start taking risks.

Expand your horizons. Accumulate experiences.  Enjoy the journey. Find every excuse you can to celebrate everything you can. Live like today is the first day and last day of your life.

Don’t let what’s wrong with you keep you from worshiping what’s right with God.

Burn sinful bridges.

Blaze a new trail.

Criticize by creating.

Worry less about what people think and more about what God thinks. Don’t try to be who you’re not. Be yourself. Laugh at yourself.

Quit holding out.

Quit holding back.

Quit running away.

Chase the lion.
