FOR MY PASTORAL COLLEAGUES:
Just read this article - it's good (thank you Lora).
"Some Thoughts on Why Megachurch Pastors Keep Failing."
You can't have a great ministry and bad marriage. A bad marriage will obliterate a great ministry.
If you’re winning at work but losing at home, you’re losing.
Leaders, you're supposed to serve the church. It's not supposed to serve you.
Just because everybody doesn't need to know everything, it doesn't mean nobody does.
There is a world of difference between a platform and a pedestal. Pedestals are about ego and adulation. Platforms are designed to be shared and used for the benefit of others.
It's way too easy for your platform to outgrow your character.
The seeds of failure are in all of us. So are the seeds of finishing well.
