"Go big or go home." I have no clue who said that first or, at all, where it came from. I do know that we used to say it about Michigan football all the time. Now I say it to people when they need encouragement to step outside of their comfort zones. Wherever it comes from, the lesson is the same. Mediocrity is not an option. If it is, don't start. It is pointless to do something half way. It is useless to do something without your whole heart, sans passion. I once read a quote by Martin Luther once, "Sin boldly, but love God more boldly still." Even that statement, by a great man of faith, implies that even sinning mediocrely isn't okay. Yet, we live out our lives lazy, complacent with the way things are - stuck.

When we do not live passionately, live out of all that we are, we are not truly living our lives in the fullness of who God created us to be. We must decide to never do anything half-way. It's all or nothing.
