The expectant life.
We have the expectation part down cold.
We don't have to be taught to want more.
That's effortless for all of us.
But we are missing something when all we do is expect more,
without doing something that will make it happen.
Where is it found?
An expectant life starts with embracing a sacrificial lifestyle.
We can't expect more, expect change, expect progress...
without embracing a sacrificial lifestyle.
Until we've given something up for it,
we haven't really committed to it.
I'll go first.
Since my college soccer playing days, I haven't taken care of my body.
I'm not overweight, but I'm out of shape.
I have back pain on a daily basis.
And it's correctable.
For the past couple of weeks I started doing something about it.
I've seen progress.
And to see more, I'm going to have to sacrifice more.
I want to today. It's a good day.
I might not want to tomorrow. I might be sore.
But I'm all in.
I can't expect to feel better about myself, if I keep giving in to what's easy.
What do you need to sacrifice so that you can realize the expectations you have?
The expectation that comes from a sacrificial lifestyle,
creates a contentment that is undeniably incredible.
Because it's not just about us.
It's about others.
It puts us in the position to care for,
and pour into other people's lives.
And that, my friends, is a life clicking on all cylinders.
