To Be Or Not To Be

Just a quick thought today… in the form of a question:
<h3>Are you a great spouse &amp; parent, or are you just not a bad one?</h3>
In other words…

<strong>Are you the spouse and/or parent you were created to be… or are you just the product of a list of things you have committed never to be?</strong>

There is a difference.

I realized a while back that though it was a good thing to have a list of things I never wanted to do or be with my wife and kids… basing my goals exclusively on what I want NOT to do was limiting my potential as a husband and father.

<strong>How can you become all you were meant to be if you’re focused more on what you don’t want to be rather than what you could be?</strong>

I don’t want the best I can be to just be a good version of someone else from my past. I want my best to be all that God wants for me to be.
