“The biggest challenge I have for you: Don’t follow your passion. We have tried to reverse engineer the process. You try to find your passion first and then apply it to your practice.

“Jesus is the first runner. In other words, in this Legacy Race, the one out front of me, the one setting the pace, is Jesus Christ. I keep my eyes on him. I am being transformed by him. … When I think about what my interaction is with the world, I watch him with people. When I think about what my values should be — about money or about power or about people — my eyes are set ahead. I’m looking ahead to him.” 
Mike Cope (’78), director of ministry outreach, Pepperdine University
