Most love great designSome design.

Most listen to great musicSome write great music.

    Great post and very challenging! I have to admit to be a Most that is becoming a SOME through trusting God and stepping out of the boat in expectation that He will catch me. Appreciate You!

  9. Wow Scott,
    TOTALLY blown away by thoughts on are YOU MOST OR SOME?

  10. Shawn says:

    Here’s one more…
    Most read blog comments. Some actually post.

  11. Hey man… love your stuff!
    The only challenge I had with this post is that it seems to equate someone who is not naturally talented at art or music or writing with someone who is not generous or does not live intimately. I would say that in most of these areas you have listed… it’s totally cool to be a “most” because it has to do with how you are wired by God. Like, my life will still be complete if I listen to great music, enjoy great design, read great books, and attend great conferences… whereas areas such as intimacy and generosity have a lot more to do with personal habits, and are things that should be pursued and the goal should be to become a “some”. Definitely thought provoking…

    I am content with who I am even though I’ll never create beautiful art or write music… I also think that ‘most’ people think they can write a book, but only ‘some’ have anything worth saying. Browse a book store or better yet, a used book store, and you’ll see very quickly what I mean.
    I second Jeremiah Curren.
    Let’s not strive to be “some”thing we’re not. ;)

  13. Ted says:

    Very thought provoking, Scott! Enjoyed your challenge and creative thinking.

  14. Bianca says:

    Whew, that kind of hurt to read. I want to be SOME… so I’ll try living like it ;)
