From Mark Battersons blog a really good thought on how important vision can be. From his new book which releases soon.
I think vision is the cure for sin. One reason many of us get entangled in sin is because we don’t have enough God-ordained vision to keep us busy. The more vision you have, the less you will sin. And the less vision you have, the more you will sin. It is a vision that keeps us playing offense spiritually.
Too often we try to stop sinning by not sinning. That is what psychologists call a double bind. It’s sort of like saying, “Be spontaneous.” You can’t be spontaneous now that I’ve told you to be! The way to stop sinning is not by focusing on not sinning. The way to stop sinning is by getting a God-sized vision that consumes all your time and energy.
[What do you reckon to that?]
