2-Minute Multiplier: #Loftygoals
Our staff started a #loftygoals slack channel. A repository for the things we’d love to be able to see or do one day as a network.
Partly because new staff with new views joined the team. Partly because this digital transition season superglues our vision into the here-and-now. Our eyes and hearts need travel trailer trips beyond our computer screens.
But also because we know Jesus wants everyone to know Him. We would love to contribute bigly to heaven’s population.
What #loftygoals would you love for your family? For your children and their children?
Is there a skill you’d love to learn? A house you hope to build? A marriage you hope to rebuild? (Marriage rebuilds are always the best.)
What makes your #loftygoals un? Unreachable. Unreasonable. Unrealistic. Unimaginable.
Un words suck the life out of the room. And the home. And the heart.
The Bible routinely turns un into real. No way into “Yes!” Can’t be done into “Of course.”
Not when you want something your way in spite of God’s way. Not when you’re the puppet master and Jesus, the marionette.
But when your heart lives under His heart?
Psalm 37.4,5 say it like this: Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this.
Translation? Pursue the #loftygoals God has for you and your family.
Pursue His desires of peace and unity. Honor Him with your work and worship. Adopt His goals for your body and your stuff.
Help more people get to know Him. Help more people receive His life-changing love.
There’s no un in #loftygoals that flow from God’s heart.
