This article is fantastic. It’s about how we all want to change the world, but most of the time we go wide and shallow rather than diving deep and supporting a few things well. I want to support well and know what I support and be able to share it. I think that is the real way to make a difference.
Some quotes I liked a lot:
“I want to accentuate the idea that you can’t do everything on your own. This whole Lone Ranger perspective is dangerous. I think the person [who] tries to do everything will do nothing well. We’re not able to go deep.”
“One of the best pieces of advice I can give to people is, “You can’t do everything.” And I think one of the reasons we might be a little bit shallow in our generation is because we’re trying to invest ourselves in too many things. So, I would caution folks: Be informed and educated about many things, but go deep in a few things.”
“I would love our generation to take more time to listen, to pray, to allow it to break us … We should be about the marathon and not about the instant justice gratification.”
“The other thing that I would say to encourage other folks who are wanting to impact change is this: You cannot ask people to do something you’re not willing to do. That kind of leadership does not resonate with people.”
Basically, just go read it, before I quote the whole thing on here ;)
