Stay on the Road — Sustaining Yourself to the Goal

We can have the aspiration to do something and have it be for all the wrong reasons.

It’s been said that there is a difference between being driven and godly drive.

We can have the aspiration to do something and have it be for all the wrong reasons.

We can also have the drive to do something and have it be for all the right reasons.

There’s an expression in sports that we don’t play for the name on the back, but for the team on the front.

“We need to live our purpose and serve God by leaving an impact on this world but with the hope that people would not remember our name but remember Jesus’s name.”

Sometimes we can get carried away in our ambitions, in making a name for ourselves, in building a “legacy” and none of those things are particularly bad on their own. However, it’s the carried away part that’s dangerous.
