Important Thoughts #12...

I've been going through all of my stuff for the past few days. Today, I threw out a ton of old magazines. But on top of those magazines were two notebooks from conferences I've been to. So, I figured since this is the first year in the past three that I missed attending the Willow Creek Arts Conference, that I'd browse through them.

What I found were two important thoughts that I knew I wanted to share...

The first comes from Dewitt Jones, who spoke at last year's Arts Conference...

"The best way to give ourselves to God is to give ourselves to each other."

And the second comes from Colin Powell at Willow's 2007 Leadership Summit...

"Don't let your ego get so close to your position that when your position goes, your ego goes with it."

The first is, what I think, a beautiful way to look at our relationship to God and how it affects our relationships with those around us. The second is something that I've struggled with since January. Well, it might not be such a struggle now. But three or four months ago... Ugh...
