This weekend Ben and I got to listen to Dr. Millet, a professor of Ancient Scripture who has authored over 60 books speak on Christianity and Marriage. He had a lot of great advice, insight, and inspiration. Its given me a bit to think about this weekend, especially as I’ve been thinking about my goals for this new year.
“The measure of your Christianity is your willingness to be inconvenienced for others.” Christ, the greatest example, was the most inconvenienced (pardon me if that sounds blasphemous, but bear with me). In other words, the measure of our love for others is how much we are willing to put aside our own will for theirs. How do you let yourself be inconvenienced?
A few other things to think about
- “Simplify your personal life.”
- “Do not be driven by the tyranny of the urgent.”
- “Love is spelled T-I-M-E.”
- Choose not to take offense.
- Assume the best.
