Here’s my hypothesis: Each of us are capable of making a list of what we’re learning in our lives as well. I just happen to write them down and publish them to the World Wide Web for all to see. Feel free to comment back and let us know what you’re learning in your world as well. I’d love to hear it and learn along with you…
12. I’m learning what it means to Trust… Really trust. Dr. Richard
Powell, who is the pastor of MacGregor Baptist Church here in Fort Myers, FL
(& an amazing leader, pastor & guy) told me recently over lunch that, “I
would have to learn to completely turn my back on entire areas of NLC. That
would be when I could know that I’ve completely given away ministry to
others.” I have definitely adopted that phrase, “turn my back” recently.
That takes trust. And man, it’s hard sometimes.
13. I’m learning Jealousy can hit you quick. I’m amazed at how quickly I
can drift toward jealousy or comparison in my life. I see another guy’s
book, or hear of something another guy is doing in a church somewhere, and I
immediately rush to judgment. I hate that about myself. That’s the kind of
stuff you have to crucify on the cross ya know.
15. I’m learning about sins of Commission & sins of Omission. This isn’t
new information for me, but I was recently refreshed to the categories.
Sins of Commission are those things we do that don’t please God. Sins of
Ommission are those things we DON’T do, that consequently cause us to miss
out on God’s best for our lives.
Where are we guilty of a sin of “Omission” in our life? Where are we hesitating to take a step of faith, instead of pushing through and just trusting God.
Just a bloggish thought,
