What Breaks Your Heart?

October 2, 2014

I am blogging from Atlanta, Georgia at the Catalyst 2014 Conference. I have been asked to serve as a part of the Blogger Team at Catalyst!

Andy Stanley, Pastor of North Point Community Church and one of the best communicators out there opens up each Catalyst Conference. He read from Nehemiah 1 and asked us two questions.

Andy-Stanley CAtalyst

  1. Who are you?

  2. What breaks your heart?

Even if small, what is in you that must bring about change?

There is a correlation between leaders and change.

  • Great leaders make things better.
  • Great leaders love progress.
  • Great leaders fix broken things.
  • Great leaders don’t blame.

“Blame is the most effective change avoidance strategy.”

We, as leaders, hate to see broken things be broken. Broken hearted leaders effect change.

How to Be Rich

March 5, 2014

Rich is a matter of perspective. There is always someone richer than you and someone poorer than you.

My wife, Lindsey, wrote blog post which went off the charts with traffic right around Christmas this past year. The post was entitled,  “Kid’s, We’re Rich!”

In the post she offers this definition of wealth:

“I think God defines wealth as having enough to provide and care for your family and a bit more to do the same for some of those around you. If you are able to do that… you are rich… Instead of defining our wealth by how much we can consume, we should define it by how generous we are able to be. First to our family and then beyond.”

The entire post is worth a read! Take a look HERE!
