La-Z-Boy Chairs, Popcorn, and Tennis Shoes...

Are you a person who sits and watches evil things happen, or do you do something about changing things that are wrong? Answer truthfully.

I,  for one, am not content sitting in my la-z-boy chair with a bowl of popcorn while watching life pass me by (yes, even if it's that amazing white cheesy popcorn). I was put on this earth for a reason, and by golly I'm going to live with that purpose!

Yes, no matter how comfortable this char looks, I will resist! Well, maybe.... ;-)

What do you think? Should we just let the awesome people who are changing things keep on doing what they're doing, or should we ALL stand up when we see things are not right? (Hint: your answer should involve the last part there).

I encourage you to think about your own life, and pray about this. Ask God for direction in your life so you can get out of your recliner and into the action. Find what you are passionate about, and ask God to use you to make a difference. Resist the urge to be complacent! We are all called in different ways. We aren't all called to be on the front line of life's battle, but we are all called to fight for what is right. So pull yourself out of your smooshy luxurious chair, put your popcorn away, and get your tennis shoes on. We're in this to win it. Today is the day.

  1. There can always be more people out there making a difference. I don't think there's many excuses to not be doing anything at all. Everybody has a purpose and a reason for living, sitting in a la-Z-boy recliner is not one of them.....most nights ;)
