Encouraging Quote: If you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll end up someplace else. – Yogi Berra #RoadSigns #XP3
If you set your course in the wrong direction, you’ll end up in the wrong place every time. No matter where you hope to end up, the road you choose matters. The book of Proverbs gives us wisdom to help navigate the choices of life, because we know that each choice determines the direction of our lives. And it’s our direction, not our intention that ultimately determines our destination. Where are you heading? What path are you on?
Recap of Action Point:
Parents – here’s something fun you can do as a family to establish direction to a great destination:
Step 1: Together, pick two words/phrases that you would like to describe your family. Example: fun, healthy, generous, servants, patient….
Step 2: Follow these rules: #1 Don’t call anyone out. This is not a chance to dish, bash or point figures. It’s a chance to move forward. #2 There are no perfect answers. Just start brainstorming and go from there!
Step 3: Answer these questions: #1 What is the first step you need to take to make each of the words/phrases you chose above a reality for your family? #2 What kind of mile markers and guardrails/boundaries can you set up as a family to make sure you stay on course for the long haul?
Step 4: Enjoy the ride – and remind yourself of your two words when you lose focus!
