Key Points From This Episode:
“Instead of just doing what I want to do, and achieving the goals that I want to achieve, I became a little more interested in what God was up to.”
“Learn more about what your call is, what your passions are, what your gifts are, and then try to get into a position where you can play to those strings and allow others to play the role that they're supposed to play.”
“That's our most important commodity, the time God has given us.”
“Know your calling, understand the circumstances God has given you, think about your family in light of those things, and spend your time the most effectively you can.”
“If we’ll be willing to look around and think about people, we’ll get into a place where we won't struggle to find opportunities towards generosity. The more we practice it, (the more) we'll understand what Jesus meant when he said in Luke 12, don't be greedy.”
