009 The Long Road Ahead

SCRIPTURE: Luke 13:31-35; 14:15-24

It is often said of those climbing the corporate ladder of success, ?Watch who you step on on your way to the top. You might have to pass them on your way down.? How true it is that we rarely pay attention to those who are on the sidelines of our lives. It’s time for us to be challenged again to consider those we pass as we continue our journey.

008-04 — A New Purpose

008 Fixing Life

SCRIPTURE: Various

Stephen Covey says that the easiest way to change someone’s behavior is to change that person’s title. If there is a manager who isn’t managing well, then change the title from ?Department Manager? to ?Top Dog Motivator? or something that more clearly describes the purpose of the job. As I see it, behavior changes when we get a new awareness of our purpose in whatever situation we are. What about life? Did you know that your life has a purpose?

008-03 — A New Commitment

008 Fixing Life

SCRIPTURE: Various

The beginning of the year is when we all make our ?resolutions? and by now most of us have already messed up on them. We think, ?I can’t keep my commitments to myself, so why bother making them ever again.? I think I know the solution to our problems with all these commitments. Simply put, we don’t need them. There is only ONE commitment that we should make, and it is one we MUST make if we want our lives to be all they can be.

008-02 — A New Community

008 Fixing Life

SCRIPTURE: Various

Alcoholics Anonymous is one of the most successful ?life-fixing? organizations out there, and its success is largely a result of their emphasis on community. The simple truth is that for any aspect of life change to take hold on me, I have to get connected with people who are just as committed to that life change as I am. I’m convinced there is only ONE community that can help anyone with any kind of life change he or she needs to make. Interested?

008-01 — A New Perspective

008 Fixing Life

SCRIPTURE: Various

Whenever something is really messed up, I have a tendency to jump into the middle of the situation in a valiant attempt to fix it. How many times have I stopped my car, lifted the hood and gazed vainly into the middle of that vast configuration of hoses and metal only to realize that I’m hopelessly out of my league. The first step in fixing anything is to recognize when the repair is more than we can handle.
