One evening a discouraged pastor asked his board; “What do you think our problem is… apathy or ignorance?” to which one board member quietly answered; “I don’t know and I don’t care.”
It’s been said that enthusiasm is the highest paid commodity on the planet. If that’s true, what would your salary be? I mean, just how enthusiastic are you about life, your faith, your family, your career?
The Apostle Paul once wrote; “Never be lacking in zeal…” Romans 12:11. Let me ask you a question, “How long is never?” I hope your answer is “long enough!”
God directs us to be consumed with “zeal”. Or in modern terms; “enthusiasm!” And it’s a life-long project. In fact, I’ve found that remaining enthusiastic often becomes more difficult with age. Growing cynical is much easier that growing in enthusiasm. I suppose that’s because life brings with it so many difficult and stretching situations.
Personally, I’m committed to doing all I can to keep our Moore On Life listeners fired up, enthusiastic, hope-filled and motivated. Your gifts to MOL enable us to do that. Thank you.
Your support is more crucial than ever. I must tell you how financially short we are. Frankly, our staff hasn’t been paid in months and have made huge personal sacrifices to continue to support you, and this ministry. As we head into the typically lean summer months it is imperative to get caught up and we must have your financial support to continue this ministry. Twenty-four thousand dollars is required to continue to reach you, and our listeners. I pray you can help us reach that goal by sending your gift today or simply going online and giving there.
I just recorded a brand new series entitled “Looking for CEOs” In it, I endeavored to identify the three crucial ingredients necessary for excelling in every aspect of life.
- Session 1; C – Creative
- Session 2; E – Enthusiastic
- Session 3; O – Organized
I’d like to thank you for your gift this month by sending you the second message from this series on the subject of enthusiasm. I know it will fire you up and I’d like to send it to you as a CD or as a downloadable mp3 – your choice. Either way, enthusiasm is essential and I know this message will cultivate it within you.
The wisest man who ever lived understood the significance of enthusiasm and penned these words; “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might.” Ecclesiastes 9:10 I’d like to help you be an enthusiastic, “all-your-might” individual by sending you this message today as a thank you for helping us get caught up financially.
Big thanks my friend, and I promise I’ll enthusiastically keep on keeping on, but we sure could use your help right now.
