Yesterday, I traveled to a small blacksmith shop in town that manufacturers supplementary equipment for the military and the police. It was such a small shop with 3 or 4 employees total, but they produce a great product. However, what impressed me the most was their passion and the way they love what they are doing.
I saw the same thing a few weeks ago with the UTC football coaches when I was able to spend a few moments breaking down game film with them at a First Things First parenting event. They had incredible knowledge and an incredible desire to win football games.
I am so envious of the passion these people possess. I love the focus and their desire for one thing. I notice at my corporate America employment site it can become very easy to lose focus on the goal. It’s so easy to get distracted and be going in a direction that makes no sense.
So, that is why I am so envious of the passion that is so evident in these people – focus, determined, heading toward one goal.
Hm, sort of what our creator expects from us!
17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. (Colossians 3:17, New International Version)
This is the type of passion that I yearn for, one focus, one desire, on tasks. How about you?
