Whenever it happens, at some point we solidify on the path of doing, and forget we are still becoming.
One place I worked, I kept hearing about a man I knew well. People would speak in reverential terms about what this man had done for them in years past, eager to tell me the stories. Now this fellow is just an average, American guy - you could have asked his wife, and she would have told you so, straight out, with some anecdotes to prove it. He followed the Cubs and played an average game of golf. At any rate, he didn't set out in his interactions with these folks to be revered, but the integrity and forthrightness of his relationships left that impact on people - in a way they brought up to talk about decades - DECADES - later.
That is awesome. I want me some of that.
What if we thought about life and faith differently? What if we imagined what kind of man or woman we wanted to become, what attributes we wanted to live, how generous, noble, caring, influential you wanted to become.
THEN, what if we really invest in the progress of becoming that person. Like we would a biology major, or an education degree. It might involve mentoring, accountability, investment, prayer.
Who could you be?
