If you died in a year, what is one gift you would hope to leave the world? What is your deepest reason for wanting to offer this gift? Why do you wake up in the morning? Why does what you do matter?
These questions were part of a Momentum Challenge some friends and I started a few years ago. It's a challenge we recently decided to start again. I'm normally long-winded, and started this exercise the same. Then, to keep it real and keep it thirty, I dwindled it all down to two thirty-word answers.
The gift I would leave the world (in 30 words, of course):My story. A collection of the hard and vulnerable moments in my life that point to the good of Jesus—His love, hope, salvation, and return to claim me forever.
My Mini 30-Word Manifesto:Let’s live and tell our stories in hopeful truth. Placing the hard and vulnerable in Jesus. Receiving His freedom and grace. Telling others and inviting them to do the same.
It's your turn.
What is one gift you hope to leave the world?
What are you doing to live that story and share it with others?
