Visions True Value

By Doug Franklin May 8, 2012

Without vision, we are constantly on the defense, waiting to see what obstacles are coming and how much they will take from us.  Without vision, we are so focused on damage control that we miss out on the depth of relationships around us.  And honestly, living without vision makes it so we can’t reach our potential. In essence, we aren’t the most effective or impactful when we can’t see clearly.
Think back to your burdens and your passions.  There are things that are welling up inside you, compelling you to make changes in this world.  Not to mention the life that Christ called us to.  Vision is the thing that helps us get there. Vision helps us make significant, intentional change in this world.  Burden without vision is just a broken heart.  Passion without vision is just a lot of fun.  But vision is what brings meaning and kingdom potential to the equation.
