Up In and Out

When I lived in Oregon I discovered some great work by Mike Breen. I thought about it a lot then and now I find myself rediscovering the importance of his work.

Life, to be lived well and to be balanced should be lived in three dimensions: upward, inward and outward.

Following is a short breakdown of up, in and out.

UP: time spent focusing on God (fasting, prayer, journaling, worship, simplicity, confession, solitude, silence, study)

IN: time spent focusing on others in the body (community, accountability, encouragement, corporate worship, time with others, celebration)

OUT: time spent focusing on those who don’t know Jesus' love and care (service, risk-taking, witness, thanksgiving, testimony, generosity, justice)
