I was reading an article today by Max Lucado called Take Up Your Cross. In that article he discusses the importance of taking up our own crosses to follow Jesus.
“The Lord has assigned to each his task.”
As I pondered this while I read the rest of his article he came up with a cool concept of Spiritual DNA (Direction, Need, and Ability).
- In what directions has God taken you?
- What needs has God revealed to you?
- What abilities has God given to you?
As we all take this journey together and train to compete as one working unit as Tough Mudders we may notice certain character traits of one another that stand out. I think that as we encourage each other to get stronger physically and stick with the program we need to equally encourage each other to grow spiritually. If you are like me you may not know what God’s calling is for you yet. Any guidance and insight form those on the outside looking in is beneficial and welcome. So as we all begin to grow a little more in life perhaps we can take the time to help each other realize our God given abilities so we may further understand our Spiritual DNA.
