Any ways, I have 2 nuggets for you today on this Thursday. Here is the first one. I LOVE THIS QUOTE. I also think it is 100% true. Roar on.
Here is #2. I am an avid reader of Donald Miller's blogs. I may also have an Internet crush on him. My motto is always crush from a distance... He wrote a blog today that basically validated many of my thoughts. It's about not taking social cues from your peers and yada yada yada. I have a lot of friends that are older than I am and for some reason never knew why except that they are all pretty much badasses and awesome. (Power to the moms)(And not moms)
And they love me really well and hopefully that helps me to be a better person. Don't get me wrong, I love all of my friends. Sometimes slash lots of times its good to have older friends because they tend to give good advice. Or honestly, they see the bigger picture and can subtly or not subtly help you to be the person that you or God wants you to be (Getting deep here..) Sometimes the Donald just speaks my language. I will leave you with two excerpts that I think are important. You should check out his blog sometime.
"Instead of taking social cues from people your age, take cues from people ten and twenty years older than you."
"Because the sooner you can relate to their priorities, the sooner you’ll be ready for the next stage of your life. I’m in my late thirties but I’m more interested in hanging out with people who are retired. What’s it teaching me? It’s teaching me that what ultimately matters later in life are friendships, family and love. In matters of faith, what they value most is not theological debate, but closeness with Jesus and unity with other believers."
Make some friends,
