Dreams

As the horrendously catchy Eurythmyics song tells us, everybody is looking for something. I’ve been thinking a lot about the concept of dreams lately. Not the ones we have at night but the ones that direct and define us. What do we really want in life? It’s a very cultural question. The American dream is different than the Ugandan dream. The former looks more like fancy cars and a screened-in back porch while the Ugandan dream looks more like seven children and a school-house. I encourage you to think about what your dream is. What are you living for and looking for? Personally, I’ve been very challenged by a quote from Leonard Ravenhill.

Are the things you are living for worth Christ dying for?

If I believe that Christ died for me, I better live a life worth living. Who am I living for today? Who are you living for?

The comments on that video are worth reading. Beautiful song.
