How We Live

It's the greatest challenge for us to care more about how God wants us to live, than we do about how the world views us. 
Our lives are not meant to be lived out in a popularity contest, but in following the calling God has given each one of us.

This is how God says we are to live.

The world says it's important to be proud, self-promoting, fame-seeking.
Humility is an invitation to be a doormat.
The world says it's important to speak your mind, be heard, be seen. 
Gentleness is for wimps.
The world says life is short, make things happen now.
Patience is for the un-motivated.
The world says you need to love yourself first.
Loving others is futile.
The world says it's ok to be different unless you are different than they are.
Unity is for those without knowledge.
The world places inner peace above living peaceably with all.
Peace is for fools.

Dear Jesus, if it serves you best; if it allows me to live out the calling You have on my life, allow me to be a doormat, a wimp, un-motivated, futile, un-educated, foolish.
I would rather be a fool in the eyes of the world than to live a life un-worthy of Your call. 

With a Courageous Heart,
