As I am winding down 07’ one of the things that I like to do is to set some clear goals and directions for myself and my family. This year we will reflect on what God has done in our lives in 07’ and make plans for 08’.
I generally make some New Years resolutions; one of which always seems to be getting into better shape. I examine the little areas, as well as the really big areas of my life, understanding the importance of both of them. I make a list of the things that I like; as well as the things that I don’t like. This year if I am being candid, one of the things that I don’t like is….. “I don’t like Christians with Big Butts!”
Many of you that read this blog have Big Butts and you know it; 08’ is time for you to do something about it. You know what I am talking about…. I need to be a better husband, better leader, more generous, spend quality time with my family, write a book, sever some relationships, rekindle some relationships, get my finances in order, be bold, forgive so and so, loose weight, quit smoking, kick addictions, read the Bible daily, get more involved, apply for that job, have that conversation, ask those questions….. but I don’t have the time, but I’m not ready, but I don’t have what it takes, not today but maybe tomorrow, but, but, but, but!
There are many areas of my life in which I’m a Big Butt Christian. We need to begin replacing the word but, with the word and. I need to do___________ and that’s what I’m going to do. “I don’t like Christians with Big Butts and I cannot lie, you other brothers can’t deny!” LOL
Are you a Big Butt Christian? What areas of your life do you need to replace the word but with the word and? BigIsTheNewSmall
