Motivational Quote: "Make the Mission and Vision clear and tangible by sharing it with others. Say it out loud and put it on paper. Often." -Rhonda Abrams

Thought #1: God did this. It's called the Bible.

Thought #2: Articulating a clear mission and vision is crucial. If people know what your organization stands for, if they know what you as an individual stand for, they can determine their involvement and commitment. Also, you have the bonus of accountability for your own actions. Never place yourself above someone asking "Is what you're doing in line with the mission and vision you've put out there?"

Prayer: Lord, people need You. And I have to do better with sharing your word with them. This world is spinning rapidly away from you. Give us strength for the task.

Proverbs 27:1 ->Be careful!

Proverbs 27:2 ->Let God provide for your exaltation.

Proverbs 27:6 ->If it's your enemy, don't accept the compliment. None of this 'noble foe' garbage. It's deceitful. They want to win and want you to lose.

Proverbs 27:12 -> And also guards his family from evil. What kind of parent sees the evil, hides themselves, and then sends their kid straight into it?

Proverbs 27:14 ->Blessing needs to be blessing to the blessed. Consider the recipient, not the giver.

Proverbs 27:21 ->How we handle praise is a reflection of our character.

1 Timothy 3:6 ->Should we hold new converts back from committing to the ministry? Should we insist on a 'waiting period' for ministry commitments? So that the new believer has a chance to grasp their adoption first? Hmmm....
Moving toward the Horizon,
