Life is about venturing, going where you have never been. Five lessons to learn from the lepers. 1.They took initiative. Life presents to all of us problems,what will you do when problems come? You can decide how to act. The lepers refused to live as victims - passengers in life, victim mentality. They took charge of their life. 2.They did not pretend that there was no problem. They accepted their situation and took responsibility because when you move, God moves. 3.They decided to take a step of faith. If you are certain the plan is from God, put your plans into action. Whatever God tells you, do it. 4.They refused to be immobilized by fear. Fear is what prevents people from moving forward, fear not! 5.They persevered. It will take a fight for you to move to the next level. High standards are not achieved by minimal work, you must pay the price.
