Today I read Isaiah 1:17 Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of orphans. Fight for the rights of widows.
What makes me angry? That’s a question I’ve been asking myself since May of 2007. Not an unhealthy anger, but a righteous anger. What injustice is taking place that burns within me to do something, to act, to make a difference? What keeps me up at night? What’s the ONE THING? I long to take my place in the long line of people who gave their life for ONE THING. Martin Luther, William Wilberforce, Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King Jr., John Wesley…and the thousands of other people who’s name I will never know.
I’m convinced that none of us want to just “pass through” this life. We want to make our mark and know that our lives counted for something.
Questions I’m asking myself:
What’s the ONE THING that keeps me up at night?
What injustice makes me angry?
Why did God put me here at this time and in this place?
What’s the ONE THING I have been placed here to do?
Would the world miss me if I wasn’t here?
What’s keeping me from doing the ONE THING?
