The One Decision

October 29, 2015 | Chris Payne

This past Sunday at New Charlotte, I had the amazing privilege to speak to our middle school students in The Hub.

Middle school can be really tough.
These in-between “wonder” years are often the most difficult for a not kid and not yet adult student to navigate through.
And it can be tough on everyone around them too.

Middle school is also incredible.
It’s incredible because kids are becoming adults and making decisions that will affect the rest of their lives.
So I wanted to share 1 truth with our middle school students about making decisions.

This was my bottom line truth from Sunday in The Hub:

There is one decision you can make that affects every other decision you will make.
There is one decision you can make that affects every other decision you will make.
There is one decision you can make that affects every other decision you will make.

(I made them repeat it three times with me!)

Here is the one decision:

John 13:14-15 “If then your Lord and Teacher has washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you.”

Here is the one decision you must constantly make: To serve, and not be served.

The disciples wanted Jesus to make a decision about who was the greatest at the table. Meanwhile, the Greatest at the table made a decision to serve.

Are you going to be the greatest, or are you going to serve the Greatest?

This is the one decision you can make that affects every other decision you will make.
