Ok, I have 2-3 three more posts this week on things that struck a chord with me from Mark Batterson’s Book, “Wild Goose Chase,” and then I will be done.
“We need people who are more afraid of missing opportunities than making mistakes. People who are more afraid of lifelong regrets than temporary failure. People who dare to dream the unthinkable and attempt the impossible.”
I know this is where I want to live. Not that I want to fail or make mistakes, but I do not want to sit by and do nothing just because I am afraid of temporary discomfort or embarrassment from failing. I think this is why many churches fail to grow, and why many Christians are unhappy.
It is easy to play it safe when things are going good. After all, who wants to mess up a good thing by making changes? But here is the deal, if you are not constantly changing, you are not growing. If you are not dreaming, then you have no vision. If you are reaching into the past for what to do in the future, you are grasping at straws. We need more Christians and churches with guts. Guts to attempt BIG things for God. Guts to do the things that no one else is doing. Guts to “dream the unthinkable and attempt the impossible.”
I am praying for guts… what about you?
