I have been going through some old files recently in an effort to get better organized and I ran across a wonderful document entitled “10 Practices Great Christians Have in Common.”  Unfortunately, the document doesn’t have the original source listed so I cannot properly attribute this list to its original author but it is too good not to share! 

The 10 Practices are:

  1. Think Great Thoughts (Phil 4:8)
  2. Read Great Books (Rom 12:2)
  3. Pursue Great People (Prov 13:20)
  4. Dream Great Dreams (Eph 3:20)
  5. Pray Great Prayers (John 16:23-24)
  6. Take Great Risks (Heb 11:6)
  7. Make Great Sacrifices (John 15:13)
  8. Enjoy Great Moments (Ecc 3:12-13)
  9. Empower Great People (2 Tim 2:2)
  10. Develop Great Habits (1 Tim 4:8)


Now that I’ve re-discovered this list that had been tucked away in a file, I am going to start asking God what changes I need to allow Him to make in me so that I can do Great things for Him!  To God be the glory!  Have a Great week!
