Give 110%

Colossians 3:23
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.

This past week I've experienced a lot of bad attitudes. Often there is a lot of talent waiting to come out of people, but is blocked by selfish desires. "I want you to give 110%"
Coaches tell their athletes this all the time. They want you to do your very best. So does God. He wants you to push yourself hard until you simply can't go any further. It doesn't matter if it's a soccer game, chasing your life dream, saving your first kiss, or running for president. he wants you to try. HARD. It doesn't do any good to go halfway. You can't be in-between. Either don't try or give everything.

Revelation 3:16
So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.

Wherever you go in life go with your whole heart. Never give up. You may fall over, but you'll be able to get back up. Whatever you do, do it as if you were doing it to save your life.

Your sister in Christ,
