Justin David Buzzard writes over at Buzzard Blog about life and the Gospel from what he considers is Western perspective–which is, in and of itself, an interesting perspective.
He has the following in a post about how to best steward the life (and in some cases of our readers, the ministry) that God has given you. You can begin, he says, by asking three questions:
- What is the one thing you are now doing that you think you should continue doing? (This should target towards your greatest strength)
- What is the one thing you are now doing that you think you should stop doing? (This should target towards your greatest liability/time waster/sin/way of harming others/etc.)
- What is one thing you are not now doing that you think you should start doing? (This should target toward your greatest opportunity/untapped potential/a big new risk)
This has given me some food for thought for the day…and my return to Girdwood in a couple of weeks.
And, frankly, as a lot of my friends enter into their 40s or wind down time at jobs or have kids looking forward to graduation or have babies on the way, these are good questions to have, not only in the back of your mind, but at the front of it. It’s another way of looking at “strengths, weaknesses, and growing edges” that I’ve looked at off and on.
What is it again, “The unexamined life is not worth living?” That’s it.
