Pray more – react less
Read more – ignore less
Listen more – just listen more
Block out a window of time (a small amount and preferably after noon) to catch up on news and social media.
Once a week:
Read and/or listen to something that challenges your assumptions/narrative/opinion – and not for the sake of poking holes, but actually engaging to understand. Remember, we serve a church with a wide array of beliefs and opinions; do the work to get to know the people in our care.
Read and/or listen to something that inspires you. Something bigger than just information – but something that leads to transformation.
Do something. Christ’s love compels us to action! We GET to be Jesus’ hands and feet – get out there and get after it! There are no small steps of obedience.
