I gave a speech to my kids yesterday.
It was my birthday.
So I felt entitled. :)
"Pursue your dreams," I told them.
"Run your race," I implored.
"I will root you on," I said.
"Because I am finished with mine."
Indeed, I have gone to Bible College...
Lived in the South Pacific.
Started a church in the Mid-West.
Pastored 7,000 person ACF.
Was a Bible Teacher in Orange County.
Am now pastoring beside (or behind) my Dad.
I want them to do better.
And while some may (even validly)...
Call that laziness.
I call it maturity.
I still want to work hard.
I no longer need to work hard.
I know who I am in Christ.
Labor to enter into God's rest.
