Don’t let opportunity pass you by!

Monday, January 3, 2011

Here’s inspiring video about the Goff family of SanDiego, California and their annual New Years Day Parade that they started 16 years ago. I came across this on Donald Miller’s blog - you can read his post here.

To me this is a great reminder to not let opportunity pass you by. We all have fear, we all face doubts, we all get down from time to time - and yet the truth is that God has put each of us on this planet to love Him and to love others. He has a purpose and a plan for each of us. But it requires us to get up off the couch and do something - to get involved in passionately pursuing a relationship with Christ and then to live that out by impacting others around us and around the world.

So, don’t hold back - maybe today is the day you start your own parade and change the lives of your community and family.
