In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins and Daniel Im are joined by Matt Brown, evangelist, founder of Think Eternity, and author of Truth Plus Love. During their conversation, they discuss the joy found in a life of generosity and what our motivations are as leaders.
“Truth minus love and we will just be like a noise to the world around us. Love minus truth and we will be walking on air, we we won’t have the power of God. Truth plus love equals influence.”
“The fruit of the Spirit is really the filter that as believers we’re called to and also what will make us influential in the world.”
“Wanting to be first and best at everything is a sure sign that we have an unhealthy heart.”
“God’s called me to be grateful and satisfied with what He’s blessed me with.”
“As a leader, sometimes you are the facilitator of relationships that need to happen, but you don’t always get a pat on the back.”
“A life of generosity is not just our financial resources, but also the totality of our lives and relationships.”
“Sometimes encouragement looks like giving people an open door or an opportunity.”
“It’s not just on one spouse to serve, we serve each other.”
“My kids aren’t going to do what I tell them to do, they are going to do what I do.”
“There is no success that will satisfy you like walking with Christ.”
“What you have in the gospel already is greater than anything you will ever achieve in your life.”
“The christian leadership life is not how you can get to the next level, it’s how you can serve and be forgotten.”
