Your Life is Boring Because You Aren't on a Quest!

Do you have a life quest? Why not?

Quests not only bring to mind thoughts of swords, armor, dragons, and battles; they also are part of an "epic" way of living. If you want to spice up your life, stop running errands and start going on quests. In a few minutes this morning, I'm headed out on a quest. If my quest is successful, I will have accomplished several important goals for this week.

Quest-thinking can make mundane tasks more exciting, but it can also help us think through important things in new ways.

We can approach our jobs with a quest perspective. We can approach family goals with a quest perspective. We can even approach discipleship with a quest perspective.


Consider the following 7 steps of a successful quest and think about how you might be able to implement them into your life today.  Particularly think about how you might walk through these steps together with your friends!


The 7 Steps of a Successful Quest:

  • determine a life-virtue to be developed
  • craft an impossible quest toward that virtue
  • observe someone else who is modelling a similar quest
  • assist someone else in their completion of a similar quest
  • attempt and fail at the quest
  • complete and memorialize the quest
  • determine a life-virtue to be developed
