Jason T. Wiser20,226*Storytelling for Business Building with Chris Brogan* There’s a lot of talk lately about storytelling in business and for good reason. Stories help people to understand and relate to your business journey. Where did you get the idea? What was the first thing you did when you realized that you had a good idea? what worked? what was your biggest mistake?  This program is produced by http://ontracktips.com/storytelling-business-building-chris-brogan/ It’s the answers to these questions that interviewers love to ask because viewers want to experience the journey of the successful business owner. They want to imagine themselves walking this path and living this dream. But aside from telling your rise to the top story, what other stories can we tell as business owners? what other stories do people want to hear? That’s why I have invited @118320665823821681206  to “Get on Track, Stay on Track” because Chris is passionate about small business and he understands the value of telling story for branding, for marketing, for business. *Chris is the Author of* "Trust Agents", "Google+ for Business" "The Impact Equation" "Social Media 101" and the soon to be released "The Freaks Shall Inherit the Earth" http://jtw.bz/ChrisBr (affiliate link) Some of the questions I’m going to be asking Chris are: ⇒ Other than your rise to the top story, what day to day stories can we tell in marketing? ⇒ What are some of the best examples of companies that are using storytelling in business today? ⇒ How much of your personal life do you share in your business story? If this interests you, start asking questions now AND Invite 2 friends! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------   Did you click "Yes" on the event invite? Catch past interviews  http://ontracktips.com and *look for the big RED button.* Upcoming Guests: ⇒ Andrea Vahl "How to Find clients" ⇒ Phyllis Khare "Time Management for Small Business Owners" Subscribe to "Get on Track, Stay on Track" on YouTube -http://jtw.bz/YouTubeOTT  Listen to our Podcast in iTunes http://jtw.bz/iTunesOTT  Join us on Twitter using the hashtag   #OnTrackTips   ========================================­============== If you like this series, Please Share this with 2 friends.

Conversations That Matter
By Kris Vallotton

16 ways to let people know that you don't value the conversation you are having with them:

1) text during the conversation.

2) be late for a meeting that you asked for.

3) keep looking at your watch while they are talking.

4) take phone calls during your dialog.

5) suddenly change the subject. Interrupt them by pointing out something happening outside the conversation.

6) bring a child or baby into an important meeting.

7) look around the room instead of keeping eye contact.

8) preach to the person. Have a one way conversation.

9) show no compassion when someone is obvious hurting doing the dialog.

11) talk over them while they are talking.

12) develop your response or defense while they are talking instead of listening to their heart.

13) don't engage your soul...speak head to head. Show no emotion.

14) wrangle over words instead of listening heart to heart.

15) correct someone's vocabulary when it's obvious what they are saying.

16) finish their sentences for them.

I am guilty of some of these, how about you?

Are You A Cultural Christian Or A Biblical Christian?

At our church we are walking through Jesus’s messages to the seven churches in the book of Revelation. Had to hit the pause button on the church of Pergamum — the compromising church.

This message really hit home, because today the church is losing its biblical fidelity. A quick click of the remote or browse of the Internet, the headlines are revealing a disturbing trend of the church bending towards cultural norms rather than standing in the truth of the Word of God. More and more people, who call themselves “Christians”, are compromising core biblical values to avoid being stigmatized or persecuted.

Hold Strong
By Jeremy A. Glassman

In the wake of tragedies that have stricken the world, such as the cry for help in the Baltimore riots, the earthquake in Nepal, and the other horrors that go unseen everyday, I'd like to share some personal words that help guide me, in the hopes that they can illuminate your path as well.

While it's easy to focus on bad in this world, and throw up your hands in defeat, I pray that you don't. If the spirit of mankind was to give in at the quickest inkling of adversity or tragedy, then how have we lasted this long? Our family, our nature, our spirits are strong. I ask everyone to hold their heads high, and to not give up hope on the profound strength and courage of our brothers and sisters fighting for survival against natural disaster, and against the discrimination of their peers.

It is in the toughest of times when our character is tested the most. For it is not the measure of the righteousness of a man when things go according to plan, but rather when the ground shakes beneath his feet and he is still able to hold strong.

8 Habits of People Who Are Really Close To Jesus
By Patrick Morley

We've all admired–probably envied–someone who enjoys a very close and personal relationship with Jesus. Full of zeal, they're teeming with love, joy, and peace–even though they face the same challenges we do–often bigger problems.

We've all no doubt wondered, "What are those people doing differently than me?" Fortunately, there is no secret knowledge. Instead, they are simply practicing spiritual habits (or disciplines) that have for centuries given Christians "the peace of God which transcends all comprehension" (Philippians 4:7).

8 Habits of People Who Are Really Close To Jesus
By Patrick Morley

We've all admired–probably envied–someone who enjoys a very close and personal relationship with Jesus. Full of zeal, they're teeming with love, joy, and peace–even though they face the same challenges we do–often bigger problems.

We've all no doubt wondered, "What are those people doing differently than me?" Fortunately, there is no secret knowledge. Instead, they are simply practicing spiritual habits (or disciplines) that have for centuries given Christians "the peace of God which transcends all comprehension" (Philippians 4:7). Here are eight of the very best...

1) Surrender: People who have a close relationship with Jesus live by faith. They repeatedly surrender their lives to the Lordship of Jesus. Habit: Let's make a full, total, complete surrender of our lives to the Lordship of Jesus every morning.

2) Repentance: People who have a close relationship with Jesus have a lifestyle of repentance. They regularly apologize to the people they've wronged and ask forgiveness. And they regularly apologize to the Lord and ask His forgiveness. Habit: Let's maintain a lifestyle of repentance by quickly apologizing and asking forgiveness to both God and people.

3) Prayer: People who have a close relationship with Jesus talk to him a lot. Habit: Let's set aside a time for thoughtful prayer each day, and also shoot up prayers about everything throughout the day.

4) The Bible: People who have a close relationship with Jesus regularly allow him to speak to them through His Word. Recent research shows that people do best when they read the Bible at least four days a week. Habit: Let's read the Bible on a regular basis.

5) The Holy Spirit: People who have a close relationship with Jesus walk in the power of the Holy Spirit. Habit: Let's continually invite the Holy Spirit to fill us with His "love, peace, joy, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control" (Galatians 5:22-23).

6) Church: People who have a close relationship with Jesus are part of a church community. Habit: Let's actively participate in the life of a local church body.

7) Small Group: People who have a close relationship with Jesus are part of a community of people small enough that they really get to know each other. Habit: Let's each be part of a small group that is doing life together.

8) Personal Ministry. People who have a close relationship with Jesus are generous with their time and money to love, disciple, and serve others. Habit: Let's express our love for God and people by discipling them to disciple others, and by meeting their practical needs when it is within our power to act.

If you are not as close to Jesus as you want to be, which of these eight habits do you think would most draw you in? Because these are the main practices of those people who are really close to Jesus.

Hidden Motivation
By John Eldredge

I can be a very driven man; I set very high standards; I push myself hard. There are certain “rewards” that come along with this way of living: I get a lot done; I can be successful. But that drivenness that the world so often rewards is really quite godless. The motive is horrible. It is born from two sources: it comes out of an early childhood wound of abandonment, and it came out of a very early resolution that said, Fine. I’ll go it alone. It’s a combination of woundedness and sin. It looks fine on the outside, but inside, this cup needs a good bit of scrubbing.

A guy I worked with always loved to pronounce his words very carefully, sometimes using a British pronunciation (though he was from Los Angeles). It had nothing to do with diction; he desperately wanted to be seen as intelligent. Another colleague would always ask,“How ar... more »

A guy I worked with always loved to pronounce his words very carefully, sometimes using a British pronunciation (though he was from Los Angeles). It had nothing to do with diction; he desperately wanted to be seen as intelligent. Another colleague would always ask, “How are you?” But the truth is he did it so that you would ask him how he was; he wanted to be asked. A third guy in the office was constantly dropping the ball on his projects; he would say, “I’m just not an organized person.” How convenient—it required everyone else to cover for him. How lovely! You get to live irresponsibly and make others carry the load. Friends, there is always a motive to the way we’re living.

Real American Hero

CNN's Anderson Cooper showed a lone Vietnam Vet who went out into the streets of Baltimore to stand against the crowds of rioting young people and tell them to go home. This is a real American hero. He says, “I’m not black, white, red, yellow, nothing…I'm an American.” God bless men like this who love our country and are trying to bring peace to their neighborhoods.

The Word
Written by Isaac Wimberley

If there are words for Him then I don’t have them

You see my brain has not yet reached a point
Where it could form a thought
That could adequately describe the greatness of my God

And my lungs have not yet developed the ability
To release a breath with enough agility
To breathe out the greatness of His love

And my voice, my voice is so inhibited
Restrained by human limits
That it’s hard to even send a praise up

If there are words for Him then I don’t have them

My God

His grace is remarkable
Mercies are innumerable
Strength is impenetrable

He is honorable, accountable, and favorable
Unsearchable yet knowable
Indefinable yet approachable
Indescribable yet personal

The Word
Written by Isaac Wimberley

If there are words for Him then I don’t have them

You see my brain has not yet reached a point
Where it could form a thought
That could adequately describe the greatness of my God

And my lungs have not yet developed the ability
To release a breath with enough agility
To breathe out the greatness of His love

And my voice, my voice is so inhibited
Restrained by human limits
That it’s hard to even send a praise up

If there are words for Him then I don’t have them

My God

His grace is remarkable
Mercies are innumerable
Strength is impenetrable

He is honorable, accountable, and favorable
Unsearchable yet knowable
Indefinable yet approachable
Indescribable yet personal

He is beyond comprehension
Further than imagination
Constant through generations
King of every nation

But
If there are words for Him then I don’t have them

You see my words are few
And to try and capture the one TRUE God
Using my vocabulary will never do

But I use my words as an expression
An expression of worship to a Savior
A Savior who is both worthy and deserving of my praise

So I use words

My heart extols the Lord
Blesses His name forever
He has won my heart, captured my mind
And has bound them both together

He has defeated me in my rebellion
Conquered me in my sin
He has welcomed me into His presence
Completely invited me in

He has made Himself the object of my sight
Flooding me with mercies in the morning
Drowning me with grace in the night

But
If there are words for Him then I don’t have them

But what I do have…Is Good News
For my God knew that man-made words would never do
For words are just tools that we use
To point to the Truth
So He sent his son Jesus Christ as THE WORD
Living proof

He is the image of the invisible God
The firstborn of all creation
For by Him all things were created
Giving nothingness formation

And by His word He sustains, in the power of His name
For He is before all things and over all things He reigns
HOLY IS HIS NAME!!

Praise Him for His life
The way He persevered in strife
The humble Son of God becoming the perfect sacrifice

Praise Him for His death
That He willingly stood in our place
That He lovingly endured the grave
That He battled our enemy
And on the third day rose in victory

Praise Him because He rose!!
Hallelujah He rose!!
He is everything that was promised

Praise Him as the risen King
Lift your voice and sing
For one day He will return for us and we will finally be
United with our Savior for eternity

So it’s not just words that I proclaim
For my words point to the WORD
And the WORD has a name
Hope has a name
Joy as a name
Peace has a name
Love has a name
And that name is Jesus Christ
Praise His name FOREVER!

A Happy Ending
By John Eldredge

A story is only as good as its ending. Without a happy ending that draws us on in eager anticipation, our journey becomes a nightmare of endless struggle. Is this all there is? Is this as good as it gets? On a recent flight I was chatting with one of the attendants about her spiritual beliefs. A follower of a New Age guru, she said with all earnestness, “I don’t believe in heaven. I believe life is a never-ending cycle of birth and death.” What a horror, I thought to myself. This Story had better have a happy ending. Paul felt the same. If this is as good as it gets, he said, you may as well stop at a bar on the way home and tie one on; go to Nordstrom’s and max out all your credit cards; bake a cake and eat the whole thing. “Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die” (1 Cor. 15:32).

A Happy Ending
By John Eldredge

A story is only as good as its ending. Without a happy ending that draws us on in eager anticipation, our journey becomes a nightmare of endless struggle. Is this all there is? Is this as good as it gets? On a recent flight I was chatting with one of the attendants about her spiritual beliefs. A follower of a New Age guru, she said with all earnestness, “I don’t believe in heaven. I believe life is a never-ending cycle of birth and death.” What a horror, I thought to myself.

Our hearts cannot live without hope. Gabriel Marcel says that “hope is for the soul what breathing is for the living organism.” In the trinity of Christian graces—faith, hope, and love—love may be the greatest, but hope plays the deciding role. The apostle Paul tells us that faith and love depend on hope, our anticipation of what lies ahead: “Faith and love . . . spring from the hope that is stored up for you in heaven” (Col. 1:5). Our courage for the journey so often falters because we’ve lost our hope of heaven—the consummation of our Love Story. The reason most men, to quote Thoreau, “live lives of quiet desperation” is that they live without hope.

A Great Mountain
By John Eldredge

The spirit of our day is a soft acceptance of everything—except deep conviction in anything. This is where Jesus will suddenly confront the world as a great rock confronts the river flowing ever downhill. He is immovable. The cry used to be for “tolerance,” by which we meant, “We have very strong differences, but we will not let those be the cause of hatred or violence between us.” Now it is something else, where all convictions are softened to second or third place while we all agree to enjoy the world as much as we can. But truth is not like conviction. Conviction might be a matter of personal opinion, but truth is like a great mountain, solid and immovable whether we like it or even acknowledge it. Christianity is not a set of convictions—it is a truth. The most offensive thing imaginable.

Why The Enemy Has Your Affirmation in the Crosshairs

Two Ways to Be Happy
By Pastor Greg Laurie

Praise the LORD! How joyful are those who fear the LORD and delight in obeying his commands. —Psalm 112:1

There are two ways that we can live our lives: the right way or the wrong way. There are two paths that we can take in life: the right path or the wrong path. The result is that we can live either the happy and holy way or the miserable and unholy way.

Everything you're looking for is found in a relationship with God. Take the story that Jesus told about the prodigal son. It appears from the story that he wanted nice clothes, great food, and parties. So he left home and spent all of his money. And then he returned home, empty-handed and miserable.

But what was the first thing his father did? He gave him some nice clothes. He ordered his servants to prepare some fine food. And then he said, "Wem... more »

Two Ways to Be Happy

Praise the LORD! How joyful are those who fear the LORD and delight in obeying his commands. —Psalm 112:1

There are two ways that we can live our lives: the right way or the wrong way. There are two paths that we can take in life: the right path or the wrong path. The result is that we can live either the happy and holy way or the miserable and unholy way.

Everything you're looking for is found in a relationship with God. Take the story that Jesus told about the prodigal son. It appears from the story that he wanted nice clothes, great food, and parties. So he left home and spent all of his money. And then he returned home, empty-handed and miserable.

But what was the first thing his father did? He gave him some nice clothes. He ordered his servants to prepare some fine food. And then he said, "We must celebrate with a feast, for this son of mine was dead and has now returned to life. He was lost, but now he is found.' So the party began" (Luke 15:23-24). Everything the son was searching for was in his father's house all along.

The way to be a happy person will be found in what you do and don't do. Psalm 1:1 says, "Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers." So these are things that happy people don't do.

But then the passage tells us what happy people do: "They delight in the law of the LORD, meditating on it day and night. They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do" (verses 2-3).

So happiness comes not only from what you do, but also from what you don't do.

Behind Enemy Lines
By John Eldredge

For some reason we keep forgetting that Jesus, in the Gospels, is operating in enemy territory. We project into the Gospel stories a pastoral backdrop, the quaint charm of a Middle Eastern travel brochure—picturesque villages, bustling markets, smiling children—and Jesus wandering through it all like a son come home from college. We forget the context of his life and mission. His story begins with genocide—the massacre of the innocents, Herod’s attempt to murder Jesus by ordering the systematic execution of all young boys around Bethlehem. I’ve never seen this included in any crèche scene, ever. Who could bear it? You must picture ethnic cleansing as the twentieth century saw in Bosnia, Rwanda, Burma. Atrocity, the ground soaked with the blood of children who five minutes earlier were laughing and playing.

Behind Enemy Lines
By John Eldredge

For some reason we keep forgetting that Jesus, in the Gospels, is operating in enemy territory. We project into the Gospel stories a pastoral backdrop, the quaint charm of a Middle Eastern travel brochure—picturesque villages, bustling markets, smiling children—and Jesus wandering through it all like a son come home from college. We forget the context of his life and mission. His story begins with genocide—the massacre of the innocents, Herod’s attempt to murder Jesus by ordering the systematic execution of all young boys around Bethlehem. I’ve never seen this included in any crèche scene, ever. Who could bear it? You must picture ethnic cleansing as the twentieth century saw in Bosnia, Rwanda, Burma. Atrocity, the ground soaked with the blood of children who five minutes earlier were laughing and playing.

God the Father, knowing this is about to strike, sends an angel to warn Joseph:

An angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Get up,” he said, “take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.” So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt, where he stayed until the death of Herod. (Matthew 2:13–15)

The little family flees the country under cover of darkness, like fugitives. The Father’s strategy is intriguing—surely God could have simply taken Herod out. Or sent angels to surround the holy family. Why must they run for their lives? It ought to make you think twice about how God goes about his plans in this world.

Surely you see that Jesus was a hunted man?

We cannot understand his actions, nor taste the richness of his personality until we set them within context—the man is operating deep behind enemy lines. This colors his extraordinary movements across the pages of the Gospels and helps to strip away that benevolent religious fog that continues to creep into our reading. It also gives depth and poignancy to moments of self-disclosure such as, “The Son of Man has no place to lay his head” (Matt. 8:20). Because he was hunted.

10 Devastating Mistakes Every Man Faces But Never Sees Coming
By Jacob McMillen

What’s the scariest enemy a man can face? Is it the army gathering on the horizon or the assassins sitting quietly behind the door?

Ultimately, the most disconcerting dangers are the ones you never see coming. How does a man after God’s own heart steal another man’s wife and then murder her husband?

The most devastating mistakes a man can make are rarely the ones he anticipates. Every once in awhile, it’s important to reevaluate your day-to-day existence – to take a look at the trajectory your daily choices have laid out for you. Where are you headed, and is that really where you want to end up?

Confessions Of An Imposter

It’s amazing the extents we go to try to hide our brokenness and failures. Somehow we have come to believe that failure means we are weak or that we are not good enough. The world tells us that if we can avoid exposing who we really are than we can control other’s perception of us. We become locked into the cycle. We don’t want to be exposed, we operate out of fear and we allow pride to take root in our hearts and our real selves stay in hiding and we lose our hearts.

We don’t want to be exposed, we operate out of fear and we allow pride to take root in our hearts and our real selves stay in hiding and we lose our hearts.

A Distant Whisper
By John Eldredge

When the young prophet Samuel heard the voice of God calling to him in the night, he had the counsel from his priestly mentor, Eli, to tell him how to respond. Even so, it took them three times to realize it was God calling. Rather than ignoring the voice, or rebuking it, Samuel finally listened.

In our modern, pragmatic world we often have no such mentor, so we do not understand it is God speaking to us in our heart. Having so long been out of touch with our deepest longing, we fail to recognize the voice and the One who is calling to us through it. Frustrated by our heart's continuing sabotage of a dutiful Christian life, some of us silence the voice by locking our heart away in the attic, feeding it only the bread and water of duty and obligation until it is almost dead, the voice now small and weak. But sometimes in the night, when... more »

In our modern, pragmatic world we often have no such mentor, so we do not understand it is God speaking to us in our heart. Having so long been out of touch with our deepest longing, we fail to recognize the voice and the One who is calling to us through it. Frustrated by our heart's continuing sabotage of a dutiful Christian life, some of us silence the voice by locking our heart away in the attic, feeding it only the bread and water of duty and obligation until it is almost dead, the voice now small and weak. But sometimes in the night, when our defenses are down, we still hear it call to us, oh so faintly—a distant whisper. Come morning, the new day's activities scream for our attention, the sound of the cry is gone, and we congratulate ourselves on finally overcoming the flesh.

Others of us agree to give our heart a life on the side if it will only leave us alone and not rock the boat. We try to lose ourselves in our work, or "get a hobby" (either of which soon begins to feel like an addiction); we have an affair, or develop a colorful fantasy life fed by dime-store romances or pornography. We learn to enjoy the juicy intrigues and secrets of gossip. We make sure to maintain enough distance between ourselves and others, and even between ourselves and our own heart, to keep hidden the practical agnosticism we are living now that our inner life has been divorced from our outer life. Having thus appeased our heart, we nonetheless are forced to give up our spiritual journey because our heart will no longer come with us. It is bound up in the little indulgences we feed it to keep it at bay.

What Most Millionaires and the Apostle Paul Have in Common

Have you ever desired to make millions? After all, having tons of money comes with tons of benefits right?

Having money gives you freedom. You can go do things that most people can’t afford. You can also give away all the money you make if you want.

If you don’t have to spend all day every day working to “make a living,” money can provide time to spend with your family. Having lots of cash can even buy you the time to go on missions trips. It provides you the opportunity to serve Jesus in ways many people cannot.

My Goal

Well, I have a desire to make millions. Here’s why:

You Don't Need To Be Eloquent!

"Acts says Moses was educated in all the learning of the Egyptians, “a man of power in words and deeds” (Ac 7:22). Yet when God called him, Moses resists, complaining that he’s afflicted with a slow tongue and “never been eloquent” (Ex 4:10). Perhaps Moses just started stuttering when God said, “I’m going to send you.” Or maybe during his desert years the Lord quietly gave Moses a stammer lest Moses feel he was chosen for his oratory skills. For those who say, I’m too young or old or uneducated to be used by God, I say that excuse is your version of Moses' stutter. God does not need you to be eloquent, just obedient." -Francis Frangipane

You're Immeasurable

The wisdom of the world says the shepherd should forget that one missing sheep and chalk it up as a loss. In God’s economy, each soul has its own value apart from all others. Jesus calls the people of His kingdom to help the weak and the friendless, the small and the frail, the mute and the poor, the ugly and the disfigured. -Matthew 18:15-17 The Voice (VOICE)

He Is Coming To Rescue Us
Narrative by Deidra Riggs

"He is coming to rescue us—not out of the chaos, but in the chaos. This—this rescue in the midst of the upside down, weary and worn, terrifying and titillating, frustrating, confusing, misunderstood, violent, dark, and ugly mess—this is God’s signature move. We keep searching for a way out, raising our voice with each step we take. But God delivers us out by bringing us through.

When He does, we are rendered speechless.

Check the history books and the biblical accounts and you will see our default is to pick a side and then argue our point so that we can add members to our team. It is our bent, our humanity showing through. But, right this very moment, we are marking the days in anticipation of a more excellent way: God, wrapped in skin, coming to be with us.

Silent night.

It is our bent, our humanity showing through. But, right this very moment, we are marking the days in anticipation of a more excellent way: God, wrapped in skin, coming to be with us.

Silent night.

Holy night.

God shows up on the scene with words like, 'Bless those that curse you. Bless, and do not curse.' Or, 'Father, forgive them . . .' Tough words, this Jesus whispers over our souls. But also, 'In this world you will have trouble, but take heart! I have overcome the world.'

He calls us to the table and invites us to lean in. It is the power of the table, and the Holy Spirit is the power at the table. He promises He’ll be there when we gather. Will we be able to get over the fact that we never expected the person sitting next to us or across from us to get an invitation to this table? I imagine we’ll have to lean in close enough to rub shoulders, if we’re going to hear the voice of Jesus, or catch a glimpse of Him asking for someone to pass the salt . . . to be the salt.

Advent means we expect Christ to show up in a very real way, right in our midst. Is your world too noisy for you to hear Him? How can you find silence to hear the still, small voice of God in the midst of the shouting?

Have you been waiting for God to deliver you out of something? What would change if you thought He might be delivering you through?"

A Great Relief
By John and Sam Eldredge

[Sam] “We live in the age of information,” says the old recording of an announcer in my head; so why does finding direction feel like a parade of hopeless metaphors? I’m drinking from a fire hose and snorkeling through mud. I’ve been handed a spyglass and told it holds the key, only to gaze through and find the chaos of a kaleidoscope. 

More information doesn’t seem to help. I feel like I’m drowning in it. I just learned how to tie a shemagh, found the best noodle bar in the Minneapolis–Saint Paul airport (Shoyu), and discovered twelve tips to the ultimate workout (it always involves buying something, which is weird). When I look for a job or try to map out my dreams, or some other future-oriented activity, somehow it almost always feels futile eventually.

When I look for a job or try to map out my dreams, or some other future-oriented activity, somehow it almost always feels futile eventually. 

[John] Yes, it feels that way. The twenties sure feel like the decade of decision making, don’t they? Money, jobs, women, love, revolutions, dreams—everything we have been talking through is going to require some serious and sometimes constant decision making on your part. And though I feel our decisions are weighty, they aren’t nearly as overwhelming as they feel when we are faced with them. I have never found pressure a good motivator for making decisions, nor found decisions made under pressure to be particularly good ones. So let me first try and lift some of the pressure off the decision-making process. 

The truth is, the options before you are limited and that is a great relief. The open ocean is beautiful to look at, but terrifying if you have to navigate it in a small boat. But you are not facing the open ocean. God puts us within a context, with a limited gifting and limited resources, and that is immensely kind.

Brotherhood

For me, Lone Survivor is a call to brotherhood and a reminder of the virtues we’re called to “live out” as authentic men of Jesus Christ. Outside of a Christ world view these virtues are not considered noble or practical, but are what’s needed in this world today. Jesus is inviting us to hold on tight to these virtues and to place them above our own self-preservation and Lone Survivor stunningly models out that life is about far more than mere survival. It’s about never letting life knock you down, it’s about not letting the enemy take you out, it’s about staying in the fight with your brothers until the very end.

Despite the changing tide of this messed up worldly culture today, have you noticed that men are curious and are asking what it really takes to follow Jesus Christ?
