we are looking at passion here on the front porch and brent hobbs defines it this way: “passion is waking up in the morning wherever you are and bounding out of bed because you know there’s something out there that you love to do, that you believe in and that you’re good at. something that’s bigger than you are and you can hardly wait to get at it again. it’s something you’d rather be doing than anything else. you wouldn’t give it up for money because it means more to you than money.”
that’s what you need – passion in your life so that when you get up in the morning you’re going, “good morning, LORD!” rather than, “good lord, it’s morning!” that’s the difference between the passionate and the non-passionate person.
listen, nothing matters more than knowing GOD’s reason for your life and nothing can compensate it. not money, not fame, not sex, or all kinds of other things. if you don’t know what on earth you’re here for you’re not going to have any passion because without a purpose, life is motion without meaning, it’s activity without direction, it’s trivial, it’s petty and it’s pointless. – an aimless life.
just a thought from the front porch…
