Life is short. I’ve heard this phrase repeated numerous times throughout my life by those who are often times several years my senior. More often than not, I find myself nodding with affirmation or defaulting to express an acceptable smile, yet sooner or later, I’d find myself in a position of teaching this short yet profound statement to someone else.
James 4:6, “But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says, “God opposes the proud, but shows favor to the humble.” NIV
Listening doesn’t mean agreement, nor does it mean endorsement. Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. Sadly, there is a prevailing wisdom among many throughout the United States who believe that anything old is useless and therefore worthless. This idea is not only short sighted but rooted in selfishness, arrogance, and immaturity.
Until next time, Be encouraged.
I speak to thousands of men, women, and young adults annually on leadership, relationships, and integrity. Far too often, we adopt the current slang for words, which actually carry significant opposite meaning. I wonder how different life would be if we chose to live humbly rather than prideful of things we have little or no control? If you’d like more information on this topic or how to bring me in as a speaker for your next event, please contact me.
