dr. lowe challenged us on saturday with this model:
there are three churches that you build:
- first, the one in your heart
- second, the one in your home
- third, the one in your community
second, the church in your home - bottom line, lead your family to God first. set the example of being the church at home. many pastors make this the last priority - Jesus died for the church, you don't have to and neither does your family!
third, the church in your community - this is where most pastors start - this is the LAST place to build - build the first two, then work on this one.
1.) am i growing as a leader?
2.) do i love the church?
3.) do i lead my family?
4.) am i cheating on my spouse of children by making church the top priority?
5.) what is the "one thing" i can change today?
