QUOTES FROM EPISODE 20:
“Even through the difficult times and the good times, God never wastes a hurt and he never wastes an opportunity in our past. He is going to use those experiences to refine us.”
“The ministry you are leading will only grow to the capacity you will allow it.”
“You need to yield to the Holy Spirit for him to work in you to work through you.”
“Ministry is received, not achieved.”
“Steward what you’ve been given with excellence and trust God with the rest.”
“Sadly in ministry, we’ve become managers of spreadsheets, not shepherds of sheep.”
“Young leaders overestimate what can be done in the short term and they underestimate what God can do in the long run.”
“Pride’s favorite mask is humility.”
“Your spiritual maturity will only grow to the level of your emotional health.”
