“Take courage; Get up, Jesus is calling you.” Mark 10:49
The High School our children attend has a motto for the school year and I always though that was a great idea! It is the statement of how they are going to be, act and do. It is the statement of how their faith will be reflected by the mission of the year. So why not adopt one for your family.
We have done it in ours. It was a little awkward at first, almost embarrassing, will have to think and pray over why that was, and if it's something that is untried it is going to take time to put it into practice. But it does help us motive our families. From Wikipedia: The mission statement should guide the actions of the organization, spell out its overall goal, provide a sense of direction, and guide decision-making.
So today I was inspired to adopted my own personal motto/mission statement: “Take courage; Get up, Jesus is calling you.” Mark 10:49
Not done with this yet. After some prayer and a little thinking...I will get back to you on this posting
