A very respected and wise man at my church once shared this list and I wanted to pass it on to everyone else. Throughout his life these are 10 things he has learned along the way and done his best to live by. I don’t think it would hurt for us to learn from them also. Thanks Chuck Simmons!

  1. Regularly be in God’s word. Study it, hear it, talk about it. Let it impact how you live your life. You live what you believe.
  2. Pray. Jesus did it. We need to do it.
  3. Life’s not about me being “good enough” to earn God”s love. He already loves me. It’s about being so grateful for His love that I spend my life loving Him, trusting Him and living for Him.
  4. Struggles bring strength. Am I willing to trust Him in hard times?
  5. Find and pursue mentors.
  6. Don’t fail by succeeding in something that ultimately doesn’t matter. Money, status and popularity never bring contentment; they just leave us wanting more.
  7. Get involved in a small group.
  8. Invest your life in something Kingdom-focused. God has designed and equipped us for His good works
  9. Pray with and for your spouse and your children.
  10. Don’t get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life. Sometimes we need to say “no” to some good things to say “yes” to God’s best things. Take time to prioritize.
