I read this over a year ago. But I’ve been thinking it ever since, and I ran across it again today.
According to Donald Miller:
“If you believe something, passionately, people will follow you. People hardly care what you believe, as long as you believe something. If you are passionate about something, people will follow you because they think you know something they don’t, some clue to the meaning of the universe. Passion is tricky, though, because it can point to nothing as easily as it points to something.”
Does that force anyone else to do some stock-taking?
- How passionately do I live?
- All the stuff I claim to believe… do I believe it deeply enough that it shows itself passionately to those who are touched by my life?
- When others DO observe my passion showing itself, what does it point them towards?
Thanks Donald… for sticking your nose into the lives of many.
