Define – Learn – Do is such a powerful plan, but most people do it backwards. Think about it, as a kid didn’t you clearly define how you wanted your life to look like with all your big dreams? What happened? We grow up, we go to school, go thru college but what do we pursue? Maybe your mom always told you you would make an excellent engineer so you pursue that. You learn how to do it get a good education, and get promoted. All seems great till finally your at the top and you realize you’re set with this for the next 45 years and this will define what your life looks like. You start to cross out dreams you once had, maybe it’s give to church and charity, maybe it’s spend most of your time in 3rd world countries serving the poor, maybe it’s just to have time with your kids and wife and impact future generations. But little by little what you are doing defines your lifestyle and you have to cross some of those things off the list.
What’s God’s plan? Do you think God created you then he learned how to relate to you and how to keep you alive and figure out what you can do here on earth and that defined HIM? Oh no, God dreamed about you from the beginning of creation, he defined your life and your purpose long before you were even born. So if God defines what He wants before doing don’t you think it would be a good idea to do the same in our life? You see, God’s way is for you to Define what His purpose and plan for your life are, you learn how to achieve that with God’s help and then you go do it. There are so many people sitting around making excuses for where they are at in life and so many people even quote scripture references about poor people to defend themselves! Now there is nothing wrong with poor people, but you see this isn’t about being poor or rich, this is about discovering God’s purpose for your life and giving that your BEST effort. So many people go do, learn, then that defines what their life will be like and then sit back and say “well God just chose this path for me” and “I’m living to my full potential” when they don’t realize actually they have WAY more potential but went about it all wrong now instead of confronting reality and changing, it’s excuses.
Lets do it God’s way!
DEFINE: what God’s purpose for your life is
LEARN: how you can accomplish that purpose by following God
DO: move to action and DO what God has traced your life out to accomplish
