Motivational quote: "I think we have to lead people by being good listeners. That is to say, we lead in a company such as ours by drawing out ideas from people. ... We can't simply issue commands." -Minoru Makihara

Thought #1
: This coming from a CEO? I'd love to see it in practice.

Thought #2: Guess what church leaders? Most people won't believe it coming from a pastor, either. They'd see us as hypocrites for not doing it. Make sure you have someone you listen to!

Prayer: Lord, today I need to focus on you. Help me to recognize the work of your grace in my life today. Lord, we have concerns as a family, but we trust you with our future. You are our sufficient supply.

1 Corinthians 11:23 ->We also received from the Lord. We have His word. Not that Paul's not special, but we have direct revelation, in print.

1 Corinthians 11:26 ->Observing the Lord's Supper is the proclamation of the depth of need we have, and the depth of love shown to pay it.

1 Corinthians 11:27 ->We are guilty of His body and His blood. Isn't that a big chunk of substitutionary atonement?

1 Corinthians 11:28 ->This is when we examine ourselves, in light of the cost.

Proverbs 3:16 ->One reward is life, the other riches + honor, but I don't see that either is guaranteed, and certainly not both.

Proverbs 3:27 ->And maybe don't make him fill out 5 pages of paperwork and have a background check?

Isaiah 53:6 ->And you say you're not totally depraved? Also, we think we're independent, but we all have done the same thing: committed iniquity.

1 Timothy 3:12 ->Again, faithfulness in marriage is essential. These qualifications, I'd say, are a list, not a menu. Faltering at one point is disqualifying...
Moving toward the Horizon,
Doug
