Ways we should be more like Jackson

Today is my son Jackson's 6th (and golden) birthday.  In honor of his big day, here are a few areas we could all benefit from if we were more like him:

If you have an idea, start working on it.  Jackson always has some crazy idea that he is putting together.  And he is totally confident it is possible.  The other day I came home to him attempting to build a catapult.  I don't know where he got the idea, but he was working at it as hard as he could, and drawing me into his plans at the same time.

Read through the Bible.  This just-turned six year old is on a quest to read through the Bible.  He's got through Genesis and wants to keep going.  How much of the Bible have you read?

Have zeal.  Dictionary.com defines zeal as "fervor for a person, cause, or object; eager desire or endeavor; enthusiastic diligence; ardor."  When Jackson is into something, he is SO into it.  He could not possibly more into it.  Are you passionate about what you are doing?  Are you passionate about anything?
