Devotion

Filed under: John Morgan's Blog — John Morgan @ 6:26 am

Devotion and Passion had a race. Who won? It depends if it’s a sprint or a marathon.

It seems that Passion wins most all of the sprints and Devotion wins all of the marathons.

Is your life a sprint or is it a marathon? That determination will indicate to you what you need more of in your life.

Passion is a prime ingredient in life. It makes life zesty. The difficulty with passion is that it wanes for most and you can’t always depend on it to take you across the finish line.

Devotion runs a slow but steady race and you can count on it to be there at the finish line.

I tearfully watched the Medal of Honor ceremony at the White House last week. Marine Sgt. Dakota Meyer received the nation’s highest military honor for his bravery in Afghanistan where he rescued 36 U.S. and Afghan troops while being under heavy fire and while being wounded himself. It wasn’t passion that kept him going back time after time to rescue more people; it was his devotion.

He was devoted to his fellow Marines and those fighting alongside of them. It was devotion that allowed him to finish his mission.

What are you devoted to? It’s an exploration worth your time.

We generally know what we’re passionate about but I’m not sure we’ve given as much consideration to what we’re devoted to.

For example, I’m passionate about photography but I’m not devoted to it.

Devotion is an unwavering commitment that won’t take a backseat to anything.

If you haven’t devoted yourself to something or someone yet, you are missing out on much of the fullness life has to offer.

Is there someone you know who will be there for you no matter what? That’s devotion.

Who or what will you stand tall with? Who or what is worthy of your devotion?

If you don’t know, make the effort to find out. It will keep you in the race ’til the finish.

 

All the best,

John
