Life Manifesto - by Mark Batterson

Mark Batterson shared his life manifesto on his blog today:

Quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death.
Set God-sized goals. Pursue God-ordained passions. Go after a dream
that is destined to fail without divine intervention. Keep asking
questions. Keep making mistakes. Keep seeking God. Stop pointing out
problems and become part of the solution. Stop repeating the past and
start creating the future. Stop playing it safe and start taking risks.
Expand your horizons. Accumulate experiences. Enjoy the journey. Find
every excuse you can to celebrate everything you can. Live like today
is the first day and last day of your life. Don’t let what’s wrong with
you keep you from worshipping what’s right with God. Burn sinful
bridges. Blaze a new trail. Criticize by creating. Worry less about
what people think and more about what God thinks. Don’t try to be who
you’re not. Be yourself. Laugh at yourself. Quit holding out. Quit
holding back. Quit running away.

Chase the lion.
