To Inspire or To Influence

Read a great post over at "Real Life. Weak faith. Perfect Saviour." about the difference between Inspiration & Influence.

You can read the full post here. But here are some quotes.

"Inspiration is like a nice breeze on a hot day that feels good for a minute then is forgotten the next time the sun hits your face. Influence is like a hurricane whose impact is talked about for generations.

Inspiration is a good sermon that we love while hearing it and then forget by the time we reach the parking lot. Influence is the one thing somebody said to us years ago that we cannot forget.

Inspiration’s greatest achievement is name recognition for a season and then nothing. Influence’s greatest achievement is a legacy that builds in strength over the generations to come. "

Man I wish I was that smart, thanks Shane, this will keep me thinking for a while
