  • Paralysis By Analysis

    Many churches today have a paralysis brought on by analysis; they are so busy gathering and reporting numbers that their lambs and sheep are not being fed, and their flock is not being cared for. Resulting in spiritual paralysis.

    Why are we so fixated on counting numbers? Why do most pastors think of success as it relates to numbers? Nowhere in the Bible does Jesus tell us to count the sheep. He tells Peter if you love Me then you will feed my lambs, care for my sheep, and feed my sheep. Many churches today have a ...read more

    The Fear of Failure Diamonds in the rough often go unrealized because they don’t think they are diamonds, they don’t have an advocate to encourage them, so the fear of failure ruins the confidence that leads to success. The greatest days and moods are quickly forgotten with ...read more

Even though Jesus was right there besides him, he is trying to solicit Jesus help to lower him into the pool. We are often like that: ...read more
