One of the exercises we did at the Lift Conference was to spend some time creating a personalized version of Spiritual Fitness in 100 Words. Here’s what I came up with. Feel free to share yours in the comments.
Start with grace. Practice humility. Ask big questions. Love others with your words AND your actions. Break bread with people who aren’t like you. Move toward your fears. Be hyper-sensitive to arrogance and entitlement in yourself. Be quick to forgive the faults you see in others. Pray for others more than you pray for yourself. Bounce your eyes and take every thought captive. Identify your idols by paying attention to what makes you anxious. Be a “little christ” everywhere you go. Say “thank you,” “that’s enough,” and “you’re welcome” every day. Read. Listen. Fast. Work. Rest. Play. End with grace.
