“Love life, engage in it, give it all you've got. Love it with a passion, because life truly does give back, many times over, what you put into it.” -Mary Angelou
While weightlifting I’ve watched people achieve a certain number of reps and stop, even though they are capable of more. The key is first doing ten easy reps so that you reach the point where you struggle to get two more difficult reps if you truly want to build muscle. Anything less than this is going through the motions. All too often people have this same stop-short mentality with their relationships with God. When you give God everything you’ve got, wasting nothing, He will take you to the next dimension. You begin to grow like never before.
So that nothing is wasted… (John 6:12, NLT).
