Does your faith have a ‘burn the boats’ attitude? It should… here’s why.
Faith requires commitment. It is corroded and undermined by a hesitant, vacillating “do I,” “don’t I?’ half-heartedness.
The Christian faith — in Jesus’ own words — is not for the timid. It’s for those willing to go ‘all in’. It calls for a people with no ‘plan B’, no fallback plan.
If ‘tapping out’ is not an option — if FAILURE is not an option — how does that change your attitude and approach? It changes EVERYTHING.
Because people of singular purpose are not distracted and faltering between two positions (or, to use the biblical language, a ‘double-minded man, unstable in all his ways’), the mind becomes curiously focussed on persevering and succeeding in the only remaining available option: going all-in.
People who go ‘all-in’ are exactly the sort of people who get the job done, who find ways past obstacles, and who keep going long after everyone else would have quit.
This two-minute Dougcast gives Jesus’s own take on the topic…
…quitters and nancy-boys will want to wear a cup for this one.
