Example text

Track your purpose. What is it God has called you to do? What is your purpose in life? In ministry? What gifts and talents has God given you that might provide insights into your purpose? Are you gifted in counseling but spend too much time in administration? Are you wired to preach but find little time to hone that skill because of too many hospital calls? Do you have a knack for developing the faith life of people but have little time to do it because you have so many meetings to run? What aspects of ministry set your heart singing?

When I got back into running, I developed very sore shins. My sports doctor saw that I had high arches, so he prescribed orthotics, which helped tremendously. Once on the road, successful runners listen to their bodies. They learn to determine how much pounding they can take. I find I can only run three days a week. More than that, and my shins get sore. As runners experience twinges of pain they have to consider whether or not the pain is serious or just part of the routine of running. If they’re feeling sluggish over a period of weeks, they have to find out why.

We live in a society today that longs for leaders of character—leaders who can be counted on, people of integrity, people who do stand up on the inside. Dwight L. " Character is the way we live, act, and respond when we don’t think anyone is looking. It is the heart and soul of who we are. Character is a matter of the heart. As one writer put it, when God measures people, God puts the tape measure around their hearts, not their heads. In Matthew 12:33-35 Jesus reminds us that what we treasure in our hearts—the thoughts, values, and insights stored there—shapes our character.
