Just a quick thought today… in the form of a question:
Are you a great spouse & parent, or are you just not a bad one?
In other words…
Are you the spouse and/or parent you were created to be… or are you just the product of a list of things you have committed never to be?
There is a difference.
I realized a while back that though it was a good thing to have a list of things I never wanted to do or be with my wife and kids… basing my goals exclusively on what I want NOT to do was limiting my potential as a husband and father.
How can you become all you were meant to be if you’re focused more on what you don’t want to be rather than what you could be?
I don’t want the best I can be to just be a good version of someone else from my past. I want my best to be all that God wants for me to be.
Confused much? Holler at me in the comments if you get me.
