I had the joy of reading through Gregory E. Lang’s pint-sized book Lead Serve Love.
Sometimes it is nice to have marching orders of sorts condensed to a short sentence or even
a single word.
When the word or words are uttered, focus is engaged.
Lang has compiled a book of 100 3-word ways to be like Jesus.
A friend of his calls it the “three-ology” theology.
For quite awhile over cyberspace many people were writing 6 word memoirs.
Lang has cut that in half and made 3 little words powerful to the hearer.
Each three-ology is followed by a brief commentary and scriptures.
How simple is that?
I wish that I had the idea first.
Since there are 100…here are 20 of my favorites:
- Calm troubled waters
- Count to Three
- Smile at everyone
- Offer your shoulder
- Use measured words
- Help others succeed
- Cherish your spouse
- Love the unloved
- Use your gifts
- Patiently endure testing
- Overcome your worry
- Know your purpose
- Strive for justice
- Live as servants
- Remember your renewal
- Live in today
- Accept what comes
- Love without hesitation
- Parent with love
- Forget the past
I had such fun last week reading some of your royal guest names.
I hadn’t realized how much I needed a giggle.
I would like to give away this wonderful resource.
Three ways to enter:
- Choose one of the three words above as a three-ology that gave you pause.
- Tell me your own three word theology.
- Simple say…I am out of words…give me some!
