Living Large

too smallWe were made for large lives with expansive purpose, incredible depth and significant creativity.

But most of us live small most of our lives.

We are boxed in because we feel safer in a box than in the wild world of faith and dependence.

Radical is what we call that rare kind of life. But meaningful and purposeful is what it really is.

Not everyone is built for or called to the extreme craziness of foreign cultures or distant shores. But none of us are designed or suited for the littleness of lives crammed into the framework of this temporary world’s values.

When we live in…

  • compromise: smaller purpose
  • busyness: smaller meaning
  • materialism: smaller goals
  • hedonism: smaller passion
  • routine: smaller vision

…we are living lives too small for our spirits.

If we do that, our spirits will rebel and find an outlet for adventure, risk, meaning and significance in some less than godly way.

The big, bold life we are designed and destined for is dangerous, risky and intense…but the one thing it is not: small.
