AN MVP LIFE

Gal 6:10 So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith.

 

Heb 13:16 And do not neglect doing good and sharing, for with such sacrifices god is pleased.

 

3 John 3:11 Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good. the one who does good is of god; the one who does evil has not seen god.

 

AN MVP LIFE IS DETERMINED BY

 

  1. THE RELATIONSHIPS THAT I FORM

 

WHEN YOU INTERACT WITH OTHERS AN EXCHANGE IS BEING MADE.

Ex. ENERGY, EMOTIONS, IDEAS, AND VALUES.   (Prov 13:13)

 

RULES FOR A RELATIONAL MVP

 

  1. GET ALONG WITH YOURSELF (Gal 5:14)

 

  1. VALUE PEOPLE

YOU CANNOT MAKE ANOTHER PERSON FEEL IMPORTANT IF YOU SECRETLY FEEL THAT HE OR SHE IS A NOBODY.

 

Rom 12:9-10 Love from the center of who you are; Don’t fake it. Run for dear life from evil; Hold on for dear life to good. Be good friends who love deeply; practice playing second fiddle.

 

16 Get along with each other; don’t be stuck-up. make friends with nobodies; don’t be the great somebody.

 

  1. MAKE THE EFFORT TO FORM RELATIONSHIPS

THE RESULT OF A PERSON WHO HAS NEVER SERVED OTHERS? LONELINESS.

 

  1. UNDERSTAND THE RECIPROCITY RULE

(YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW)

 

5 FOLLOW THE GOLDEN RULE

TREAT OTHERS THE WAY YOU WANT TO BE TREATED.

 

  1. THE DECISIONS THAT I MAKE

GOOD DECISIONS SOMETIMES REAP DIVIDENDS YEARS INTO THE FUTURE, WHILE BAD DECISIONS HAVE A WAY OF BOOMERANGING ON US.

 

“MAKE EVERY DAY YOUR MASTERPIECE.”

 

TWO INGREDIENTS ARE NECESSARY FOR EACH DAY TO BE A MASTERPIECE:

DECISIONS AND DISCIPLINE.

 

THINK OF DECISIONS AS GOAL-SETTING AND

DISCIPLINE AS GOAL-GETTING.

 

GOOD DECISIONS – DAILY DISCIPLINE = A PLAN WITHOUT PAYOFF

DAILY DISCIPLINE – GOOD DECISIONS = REGIMENTATION WITHOUT REWARD

 

GOOD DECISIONS + DAILY DISCIPLINE = A MASTERPIECE OF SUCCESS

 

  1. THE EXPERIENCES THAT I ENCOUNTER

 

WE NEED GOD EXPERIENCES

 

WHETHER TRIUMPHS OR TRAGEDIES, OUR LIVES ARE MOLDED BY A SHORTLIST OF PROMINENT EXPERIENCES.  

 

WE ARE DEFINED NOT SO MUCH IN THE MOMENT OF EXPERIENCE ITSELF AS IN OUR RESPONSE TO THE EXPERIENCE.

 

DO WE QUIT OR REBOUND?

DO WE HARBOR BITTERNESS OR CHOOSE TO FORGIVE?

DO WE BLAME OR IMPROVE?

 

  1. EVALUATE EXPERIENCE

DRAW UPON EXPERIENCES TO GROW AND GAIN WISDOM.

 

  1. MANAGE THE EMOTIONAL ASPECTS OF EXPERIENCE

 

PIVOTAL MOMENTS COME WITH A FLOOD OF EMOTIONS, POSITIVE, AND NEGATIVE.

 

  1. SHARE YOUR EXPERIENCES WITH OTHERS

 

1 THE RELATIONSHIPS THAT I FORM

2 THE DECISIONS THAT I MAKE

3 THE EXPERIENCES THAT I ENCOUNTER

 

A LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY YEARS LIVED, BUT BY ITS USEFULNESS.
