In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day

Your greatest regret at the end of your life will be the lions you didn't chase. You will regret the risks not taken, the opportunities not seized, and the dreams not pursued. Stopping running away from what scares you most and start chasing the God-ordained opportunities that cross your path.

In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day is inspired by one of the most obscure yet courageous acts recorded in Scripture: Benaiah chased a lion down into a pit. Then, despite the snow and slippery ground, he caught the lion and killed it (II Samuel 23:20-21).

Unleash the lion chaser within!

So writes Mark Batterson, pastor of a very amazing church in Washington, DC. Batterson builds a great case for us to get engaged with the game of life, and to not shrivel up as just a spectator, a spiritual couch-potato. We're better off dying as failures than going to the grave with unused potential.

What is God saying to you? Are you listening? Will you obey and follow through?

"He changes times and seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning." Daniel 2:21

Oh Lord, early in the morning my thoughts cry out to you. Help me to pray.I cannot do this alone. Dietrich Bonhoeffer
