In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins is joined by Luke Lezon, co-leads The Alternative in Atlanta and author of Your Mess Matters. During their conversation, they discuss the importance of mentorships and learning humility through challenging situations.
“If God is going to put me in a position to be someone who proclaims His Name for the glory of God, how can I use what I’ve got right now?”
“If I didn’t have these certain relationships I wouldn’t still be in ministry.”
“I may not be the wisest person because I’m only 27 years old, but I can get around guys that are significantly wiser than me.”
“As a young leader, a lot of times I can genuinely think that I don’t think that I know everything, but then I find myself in a situation where I’ve been thinking I knew everything to get to this point.”
“I’ve had to take the things I know in my head and try to make them things that I believe with my heart.”
“I am so incapable of doing the things God has called me to do unless I invite the God who called me to do them into my life and really evaluate my heart.”
“I’ve always been disciplined at the things I really care about, but it’s different when I need to be disciplined about something I need to do but don’t love.”
“I’m finding out that a lot of people in my generation are very purposeful people, but they aren’t very prayerful.”
“There’s not a whole lot that’s more humbling than having to sit in a hospital or on a bed for six months and essentially be incapacitated to do anything that’s productive.”
