The Founding Fathers

I just spent the week in Washington DC with my family. I was deeply struck with how forward thinking the founding fathers of America were. They were dreamers who took chances, lived big, and didn’t listen to the nay sayers around them. I think I would have liked them.

Let me remind you of Jefferson’s famous words – “All men are created equal, they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, among these are life , liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

These words sound a lot like the declaration Jesus Christ made when he said that He came for the very purpose of making it possible for all men to live life abundantly.

There is a theme among great leaders and visionaries that we are not to settle for a life lived by default but we are to strive to live our Neverland.

I believe we all need to be reminded from time to time, and sometimes more often, to shake things up and go after the life we want.

What is your neverland?

Go get it!
