Quote of the Day: Jim Elliott

"Wherever you are, be all there." - Jim Elliott (October 8, 1927 – January 8, 1956)

Its easy to live for tomorrow, thinking about getting home when you're at work, dreaming of the weekend on Tuesday, wishing the vacation next month would be here today. The problem is when you constantly live in the future you tend to miss the opportunities in the present. Not to say we shouldn't plan ahead, but planning for the future is different than camping there. People can tell when you're listening to what they say so you can give your piece and move on and when you're listening to hear what they have to say. The people who inspire the most confidence, the most loyalty, are those who have a vision for the future, but live fully and completely each day of their lives in the present.
