Great video from Generous Giving and the founder of Domino's Pizza.
It reminded me of a quote that a friend shared with me the other day:
“If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next.”
You can hear the change that occurred in Tom Monaghan’s life when his perspective shifted from temporal satisfaction to eternal impact.
The pull of pride and the sway of self-centeredness can drag us into a lifelong slump. Can you feel the pull? It competes for our hearts and minds every day.
The challenge: (Perhaps a pizza from Domino's will help us to mentally prepare.)
Spend the rest of the day adjusting your focus away from the temporal and to the eternal. Reshape every decision, every thought and every action, not only around the day but around the impact on eternity.
Is this exercise hard or does it come naturally?
What are the obstacles in life that keep you from an eternal perspective?
On that note, I think I'll order a pizza from Domino's. I doubt the pizza had much to do with Monaghan’s shift in perspective but I wouldn’t want to mess with the formula in any way.
