Sunday Highlights


We concluded the Dream Job series today.

Great series.  Lots of challenging discussion.  Lots of fun.

Here are some highlights from today’s message:

Problem: There is too much to do and not enough time to do it.

Solution: Choose to Cheat.

Our lives are full.  There is more to do than can be done in a day.  We all cheat something.  Who or what is it for you?

A few random but powerful statements that Pete made:

  • If you are going to trust God with your life, you are probably going to have to die to something.  What are you going to die to?
  • No one else is responsible for your life being out of control.
  • I would rather be a hero at home than a hero at work.
  • We buy into the illusion that more will be enough.
  • Contentment comes when the mind of Christ takes over my mind.

The bottom line question: Who in your life feels like they are getting cheated?  What are you going to do about it?

The Challenge: Over the next 30 days make a conscious decision every day about how you will honor God with your time.

I’m working on how this challenge specifically applies to me.  I’m going to make a few goals for myself.  How about you?  What do you need to do over the next 30 days to honor God with your time?

    this is something i consistently struggle with. i seem to have a lot on my plate – so much so that i dont tend to everything. its not that i cant, i just dont know whats more crucial than the other. so something/someone always seems to be getting robbed.

    i NEED to organize and prioritize for sure!

    I’m going to cheat this week!

    I’ve decided that I’m taking Tuesday off so I can leave earlier for Ohio this week. My grandparents are aging and I feel like I need to cheat work to spend a little extra time with them.

    Read about Annie on my blog — she has few friends because of her condition. I try to make more of an effort to talk with her before and after choir. Better yet — perhaps I can figure out a way to include Annie and some of the others at once, so they will begin to feel more comfortable including her into their circle of friends.
