“Ready, fire, aim,” seems out of sequence, doesn’t it? Of course we are all familiar with the well-known expression “Ready, aim, fire.” Put in a different context, it’s my opinion that “Ready, fire, aim” is the best way to live your life. It’s a Schuller habit I have adopted in my life. I think that there is something about being ready — you feel a little bit more prepared when you are ready. When it comes to fire, you do what needs to be done. If you miss your aim, you go back and you correct what you have done wrong.
As we discussed yesterday, it is essential that you act upon the knowledge that you have gained and apply it to your daily life. As a result of this action, the Kingdom of God gains a great deal of value. If you don’t do anything, then you will not be able to figure out how to fix the problems and challenges. Unless you mess up first, you are not going to know how to do it right. You can read the books, watch the videos, and take the courses, but eventually you have to get out there and stink. Before you can smell good, you have to stink first. Just ask a baby. That’s how life is, isn’t it?
Friend, that is how we become mature. It is necessary for you to be weak before you become strong. Be green behind the ears before you become a veteran, and you must be scared before you become brave. In order to live a fulfilling life, you have to step out and do things while you are still learning! Throughout your journey, the Holy Spirit will be with you, leading and guiding you along the way.
