Self-Control. Surrender. Service.
Looks good on paper, but what does it really mean?
Self control is about focus and discipline. Stay focused on what’s really important. Discipline yourself to not get distracted or tempted.
Surrender is about letting go of your plan and following a bigger plan. This requires quiet and solitude, in order to have a two-way conversation with God. We often speak to God, but rarely wait and listen for the answer.
Service is about serving others before serving self. This is a tricky one. When the oxygen mask falls from the airplane cabin ceiling, who puts their mask on first, you or the child?
It’s a distinct privilege to write here every day. The vision i to serve you. To stimulate your thinking. To challenge my own convictions, as well as yours.
I surrender to what happens after you visit this site. Carpe diem, jeff 🙂
