Day 2: The blog name

A couple of years ago I decided to change my blog name.
Maybe it was during a time that I realized that I should be living my life more for others and not so much being concerned with what I wanted.
Sure, we all have things that we want in life, for our own lives.

But, sometimes I need that reminder that it's not always about me, or ever, even.

It's a challenge to myself, and those who care to follow the random thoughts of what I blog about, to live your life as if you were living it fully for Christ, loving and serving others the way Jesus did when he was here on this earth. God sent His son as an example for us to follow as they way we are to treat others.

It's not, in any way shape or form, a sounding board for me to say, "hey, look what I am doing," most of the time I don't write about the things I feel God has lead me to do to serve others and not myself. It's just a place I go to free my thoughts and expose some of those things to those who care to read them.

So, my friends, that's the meaning behind "Live not for yourself".
