My youth leader in high school always encouraged me to be a FAT Christian:
Sure, its cheesy, but its also accurate. For me, it was also effective. Today, I do not have to think about these things (that is not to say that I have perfected them), they are a part of my posture of my life.
Recently, as I was training some leaders in Africa, being a FAT Christian came up again. As I thought about it, I said my list would be different. Instead, I would encourage someone to be a FIT Christian:
-Integrity (as in, have it)
To be faithful means you have to be available, and integrity is a big deal. For me, these are the three things I look for in anyone I bring on my team. With a reasonable level of these three (especially the last), anything is possible.
What are your thoughts?
