Vision and Meaning

Vision gives significance to the otherwise meaningless details of our lives.

— Andy Stanley —

A couple of years ago I was asked by the owner of a small business if I would work with each of his employees in helping bring their visions to life. I had worked with this owner a few years earlier and helped him create a future vision for his life and he was reaping the benefits of that process and wanted to pass it on to his employees…what a great gift!

During my work with his team, it amazed me how each of them “came to life,” when they began to write their future life-visions on paper. Visions and plans to achieve them are great sources of energy for the human mind.

We are the only animal God gave the ability to imagine. Are you using your imagination to bring significance to the otherwise meaningless details of your life?


Habakkuk 2:2, “And the Lord answered me: ‘Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it.” (ESV)
