Don’t put it off

A survey was taken by sociologist and pastor, Anthony Campolo with 50 people who were 95 years of age. He asked them this one question:

What would you do differently if given the opportunity to live life over again? These are the top three answers given by these people.

1 REFLECT MORE. ‘I would stop, think and consider with intensity the things I took for granted the first time around. Live life more purposefully.’

2 RISK MORE. ‘ I would not be afraid to step out and do what was in my heart to do.’

3. LEAVE A LEGACY. ‘I would want to know that my life counted for something and it would leave a mark long after I am gone.’

Let me encourage you by saying, it is not too late for you and I to reflect on where we stand today and ask ourselves these questions: What is something I can change today to be living more purpose-filled and to be appreciating who and what is in my every day? What is that burning passion in my heart that I have been too afraid to step out into? What is in my hand today that I can begin to use to pour into others to make a lasting impact?

Don’t be like these 95 year olds who looked back at life and said, ‘I wish I had,’ be ones who look back at life and say, ‘I am glad I did.’

Trust God in your journey.
