Show Up – at that which you want to be a pillar for, be there. It’s that old Woody Allen line about ‘90% of success is showing up’. You’re there, week in week out, over the long haul. You’re correctly counted on.
Stand Straight – Have integrity. Hold your head up high. Avoid unnecessary drama. Don’t stoop low. Embrace and embody that old fashioned value of ‘uprightness’. Have a back bone!
Take Some Weight– don’t complain. Do your part. Lift your load, and help others who are struggling with theirs. Serve by shifting some weight, and repeat.
I’m in a sweet spot at the moment – seeing a church explode with goodness and growth. I’ve got eyes to see now though – it’s being built on some pillars. Tried and tested women and men who are there, joyfully putting a shift in, day in, day out. May I be one!
“Would our sons in their youth be like well nurtured plants, and our daughters carved pillars, adorning a palace.” Psalm 144:12
