Perspective, Personal Growth and Priorities – Crumbs for Overcoming SADD

                                                                   Come as you are

“We must lay before Him what is in us, not what ought to be in us. C. S. Lewis

Giving your best

“If you’ll not settle for anything less than your best, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish in your lives.” Vince Lombardi

                                                                     Waste

“But whatever you do, find the God-centered, Christ-exalting, Bible-saturated passion of your life, and find your way to say it and live for it and die for it. And you will make a difference that lasts. You will not waste your life.”  John Piper, Don’t Waste Your Life

                                                                                                                            Prioritize

“You can get control of your tasks and activities only to the degree that you stop doing some things and start spending more time on the few activities that can really make a difference in your life.”    Brian Tracy

                        Rewards        “The marvelous richness of human experience would lose something of rewarding joy if there were no limitations to overcome.”  Helen Keller

Personal Growth

So, how do we SADD people learn to be effective and productive?    2 Peter 1:5-8 tells us to “. . . make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance , and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Therefore, let us “. . . encourage one another daily, as long as it is called today so that none of (us) may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.” (nor by discouragement or defeat)   Hebrews 3:13 NIV

                                                                                                                  Encourage one another
