This morning, as I scrolled through the “bright light” of my Facebook screen, I ran across this pretty cool story about Jason Brown. Jason, a former professional fo otball center, who gave up his lucrative football career, to buy a farm, become a farmer, which he knew nothing about and give the first fruits of his harvest back to those in need. Yep! He decided to trade in his cleats; helmet, uniform and NFL paycheck for a farm, a tractor, a couple of silos and some sweet potatoes because he wanted would make a difference in the world. #Seriously!?
Now, in my mind, I can think of numerous ways to make a difference in the world without giving up my million-dollar paycheck, to impact my community and the world. Interestingly enough, I believe, there have been times in all our lives that we too had to ask ourselves this same question, “What is God is calling us/me to leave, drop, redefine, rediscover, change, let go of, give, or look at differently in order to Make Disciples, Follow Jesus and Transform our communities/the world.
