It’s my Birthday and here are 10 things I want…

Today is my 38th Birthday!

Wow, almost to 40! I keep telling people it’s my 14th anniversary of being 24! Hah!

But, with 4 kids, my wife and I really don’t do gifts. But, in place of that, I’ve been thinking about what I really want for my birthday.

Here’s what I want for my birthday

…(and, yes, I guess this is a pretty selfish post)

1. I want to be a man that chases after God.

2. I want to be a husband that chases after his wife.

3. I want to be a dad that chases after his kids.

4. I want to be a son that chases after his parents.

5. I want to be a brother that chases after his brother.

6. I want to be a friend who chases after this friends.

7. I want to be a pastor who chases after his church.

8. I want to chase after the needs of others.

9. I want to chase after spending great time with God.

10. I want to chase after building the kingdom of God, not my kingdom.

It’s a lofty list. Probably too lofty for a guy like me.

But, goodness…I want this. 

I want to leave selfishness behind. I want to leave my pride behind. I want to leave my bitterness behind.

This is what I want for my birthday.
