Pages the next level

don't normally watch a lot of tv preachers, but there are a few that can interest me and whom i feel like are really doing some good for the Body of Christ...

late last night i was tuned into godTV (directv 365) and started watching t.d. jakes as he was speaking at the annual hillsong leadership conference...he shared this story...

as a child his mom wanted him to be able to count to 100 before going to school - he worked on it, he deliberated over it with her, he finally got to the point where he could count to 10! then he went to his mom, told her he could count to and thought she'd let him off the hook - she didn't...then he had this realization...11,12,13,14,21,22,23,24,31,32,33,34,etc...all the way to 100...are just 1,2,3,4, the next level!

the problem is that when we get to 10 on one level, we don't want to go back to a '1' on the next level, we want to, instead, go to 20, then 30, then 40, etc - however, there are steps involved going from one level to the next and you have to decide, "will I remain at 10 on this the top of this level, or am i willing to go to 1, or the bottom of the next level so that i can one day end up at 20, or 30, or 100?"

that's the question that we have to answer!
