Re-stating the obvious in an engaging and entertaining manner is both an art and a science. In each case, Andy Stanley, IMHO, is a Master Craftsman.
Direction Determines Destination.
D³ must be written on our given the Imagio Dei (image of God). Still, time and again we lean on the corrupted heart inherited from Adam rather than disciplines ourselves to orient our lives in harmony with God’s word.
Andy’s use of personal “failings’ and other life experiences seasoned with “salt” and relating to D³ serve to help us say, “Hey, wait a minute! I did that very thing!” or “That’s exactly where I am at this moment!”
Two of Andy’s observations resonated with me as I read: 1) Not being on a Truth Quest and, 2) What you won’t know. The latter observation reminded me of the Apostle Peter’s observation in 2 Peter 3:5 about being “willingly ignorant”. Once that fatal decision is made, the Truth Quest is impossible.
Great read and one to periodically utilize as a refresher for the typical mistakes we tend to make when initially charting a “direction”.
