Why We Do It
A healthy and fit person who will finish the race well
Live life with your complete life mission in view
Jesus' burden is light, and His yoke is easy. Whose burden and yoke are you carrying?
Imagine a life with:
Enough energy to do the work you are passionate about and have more than enough for your family.
Using your finite amount of time to do the things that produce the results you want and an enjoyable life.
Feeling healthy and well in your soul
Having a marriage on fire (in a good way) and kids that know they are your priority.
Anatomy of Pastor/Leaders/Non-profits
Christian ministries, churches, and non-profits have something in common.
People work for the mission and not for a paycheck.
People tend to overwork and burnout because of the sense of mission.
The important work is never done… enough to relax.
The typical pastors', ministry leaders' and non-profit worker's life is:
Overcommitted – Hurried – Stressed
Days off are busy, and it seems like there isn't enough time
Vacations, if taken, are short.
The rejuvenation is short-lived.
Puts all their heart into the organization
Works long hours with great purpose
Self-sacrifices over and over for the mission
Too often they meet Mr. burnout, Mrs. unhappy spouse, neglected children, and their medical doctor or psychotherapist.
It is time to pump the brakes and live our lives differently without forsaking the mission.
Your life mission is more important than your organization's mission.
If long life is in wisdom's right hand (Prov. 3), then working yourself to death isn't in God's plan.
