Every day, we make decisions about who we are becoming. We have to realize that every yes requires a no. Every time we pursue one thing, we say no to another.
Learn how to discern how to say yes and no to the right things, on today’s episode of the Mission-Critical Podcast.
Every Yes Requires A No
What do Benjamin Franklin, Jesus, and Dwight Eisenhower have in common? They all gave speeches on how to appropriately count the cost.
Franklin did so facing treason as he prepared to sign the Declaration of Independence stating, “We must all hang together or we will all most assuredly hang separately.”
Jesus told those that followed him to make sure they knew the cost of going to war. A complete transformation is not easy and it will require sacrifice. How will you know when it’s worth it?
Eisenhower issued his executive command order to encourage troops on the eve of the D-Day Invasion and commit them to the task at hand. Only good guys, willing to sacrifice it all, can stop bad guys bent on evil.
