Monday Morning Commentary
My husband had the weekend off yesterday. Woo hoo! He's been working furiously on his first book entitled Sun Stand Still set to hit bookstores this September. I can't wait to read the finished manuscript and will be exclusively giving one copy away as soon as it is complete. That was a joke. The part about giving one away, not the part about me being unable to wait to read the manuscript.
Anyway, today one of my favorite preachers (besides my husband and my dad) hit the screens at Elevation with an incredible message on the It Factor. Yep, Craig Groeschel.
I have heard Pastor Craig preach this message three times at three different events. Each time I heard the message God spoke to me in a different way. I have not read the book but have heard that it's incredible.
One line in this message really spoke me. I think it will stick with me for the rest of my life. I think my children will roll their eyes every time they hear me repeat it to them...
When you do what everyone else does, you can't do what no one else does.
Now that will preach. Sometimes, being different is a necessary path to being greatly used by God. I hope that I can model this with my life and pass it on to my kids.
I'm wondering what the everyone else's in your life are doing that you need to break away from...
Maybe its about not being like every other American couple who lives with consumer debt?
Maybe its about not hanging out with a group of friends who have no spiritual vision for their life?
Maybe its about being honest at your job when no one else is?
Maybe its about loving someone that no one else loves?
You can listen to the message here later today.
You can listen to any of Pastor Craig's weekly messages here.
Have a great Monday. Don't be like everyone else today.
