Here's the deal: those identical statements mean nearly opposite things. Our culture wants us to love ourselves by putting ourselves first
All of us are created with deep, profound needs, so naturally we seek to satisfy those needs. But unfortunately, we often seek to satisfy those needs in ways that are not only unsatisfying, but also sometimes downright harmful.
You can't really talk about leadership unless you talk about Jesus. Even if you aren't a follower of Jesus, it's undeniable that Jesus is the greatest leader who ever lived.
If we get only one shot at today, at life, how can we best live? Who should we be? How should we move through our days?
Every journey begins with a single step in the right direction, but as life goes on, when we don't have our eyes fixed on the outcome, it's all too easy to veer off track. You've probably heard it said that when our focus is off by even just one degree over a long enough time, that leads us to places we'd never planned on going.
Who are we? Why are we here? How do we find our place in this creative, painful, beautiful thing called life? What's the main thing we should be keeping our eyes on? We all want to figure out life. We want to understand. We want to know what it all means. And that's where I want to begin.
