In the midst of a season of discernment about vocation, calling and purpose, I am mindful daily of the importance of being grounded in the basic core truths of the Gospel.
Having been a “full-time professional Christian” for such a long time, I am well aware that in the drive to DO GOOD THINGS FOR JESUS, we can easily miss the SIMPLE BEAUTY OF BEING WITH JESUS. For the most part, I was able to stay grounded in this truth (I had other issues, lol) — but I saw many people in professional ministry burn up and burn out because they lost their footing, lost their grounding.
This teaching by Brennan Manning — one of the more important mentors-from-a-distance that I have had (almost entirely via his books, btw) — is a good reminder and grounds me well in the Good News.
Take a moment to watch it and let me know what you think…
HOW DO YOU STAY GROUNDED?
