You’ve Got to Stand for Something or You’ll Fall for Anything


“You’ve got to stand for something or you’ll fall for anything.  You’ve got to be your own man, not a puppet on a string.”  – Aaron Tippin

Are you a bold person?  Do you have strong convictions and only share them with friends and family?  Is it your nature to be reserved and easily intimidated?  For me, it is.  I’ve always been more concerned about what people might think about me than what I truly believe in.  Recently, however, I’ve come to the realization that my own selfishness is stopping me from carrying out God’s will for my life.  Who am I to squander the gifts and knowledge he has instilled in me and keep them for myself?

This morning as we prepare to go out into this world, let’s challenge ourselves to do something bold today.  Let’s push ourselves out of our comfort zone.  For you, it may be asking a prospect for new business, showing someone how much you care about them, seeking out a new job, or pointing out something that a friend needs to hear instead of what they want to hear.  For me, I plan on telling a random stranger how much God has changed my life.  Be bold, live a life north of average, and do it TODAY!
