The Call of the Sea
If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people to collect wood
and don’t assign them tasks and work,
but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.
~Antoine de Saint Exupéry
It seems that in the richest land in the world, the malaise of unfulfilled dreams is steadily eroding relationships and scarring people with the pain of a futile existence. They are lulled into a lie that their life has no purpose and they seek to find comfort in entertaining themselves while the hours and days slip by. Potential is wasted and the cost is incalculable. I am seeing the fall-out from this plague in businesses, marriages, churches – everywhere.
We’re designed with a purpose and thrive with a quest in our heart and passion in our steps.
What can you do this week to reach farther, see wider, feel deeper? What could help you kindle a greater understanding and perspective for this vast world ours? It’s likely to start with something simple and do-able. What’s that in your hand?
Unfulfilled dreams can steal your joy & passion for living. Cast off the lines, my friend, let’s go sailing.
