Live to Express, not impress

Greetings! I’m just wanting to share this great sign with you today, which was hanging up in a classroom at our school. What stood out for me was how much pain and trouble we could avoid in our lives if we truly lived by that motto, live to express not impress. In so many areas, most especially in music performance, church music and theology/bible knowledge, we strive hard to impress. We often forget that our better goal would be simply to express concepts and emotions, like God’s wonderful redemptive love, for the good of others. We need to get our eyes off ourselves, on hoping to make others value us more, and simply share for the good of others. Let me know how you go. I have found this to be a really challenging thing to contemplate!
