this will make you or break you. #dailysoulfood

"It is not what a man does that determines whether his work is sacred or secular, it is why he does it. The motive is everything." A.W. Tozer (The Pursuit of God, p127)

The husband shared this article on facebook today. As soon as i read it, i knew i had to share the words of wisdom that i read. These quotes are from Mike Myatt's article found on Forbes magazine called: This One Leadership Quality Will Make You Or Break You(@mikemyatt
  • ‎"You can wax eloquent all you like, but your actions will ultimately reveal what you truly value
  • What you pursue will determine the paths you travel, the people you associate with, the character you develop, and ultimately, what you do or don’t achieve. 
  • If you want to become a great leader, become a great pursuer. you cannot attain what you do not pursue. 
  • Smart leaders understand it’s not just enough to pursue, but pursuit must be intentional, focused, consistent, aggressive, and unyielding. You must pursue the right things, for the right reasons, and at the right times. 
  • Perhaps most of all, the best forms of pursuit enlist others in the chase. Pursuit in its purest form is highly collaborative, very inclusive and easily transferable. Pursuit operates at greatest strength when it leverages velocity and scale.  
  • That which you pursue is that which you value. 
  • The best leaders pursue being better leaders.

daily soul food: what we pursue daily speaks volumes about what it is we are idolizing. while it is good to pursue dreams, our businesses, our own betterment, etc ... let us not forget to pursue the MOST important Person that we really need. with pursuing other things, our motive should be to always bring Him and His Kingdom glory.  because when we choose to pursue Him and seek Him first, all these other things will be given to us as well. (Matthew 6:33) What we pursue will make us or break us. Let us make sure we are pursuing the ONE who made us. 

"Love the Lord with ALL your HEART, ALL your MIND, ALL your SOUL, ALL your STRENGTH." (it's all over the bible)
