This week's podcast focuses on selling ourselves short. It's so easy to do. We settle for less than what God has designed us to enjoy and to become.
Our music this week comes from Broda, specifically "Don't Sell Yourself Short" from her Spiral Staircase album.
[6:46] 4 ways that Mark has sold himself short in his past. Take a stroll down memory lane with me and maybe learn a few things about me you didn't know. Here are 4 different ocassions when I just didn't have a big enough picture of what I could do or accomplish or become. All 4 became great learning opportunities for me.
[15:45] Interview with Jillian. My daughter shares one time in her life when she has sold herself short. She also talks about her study to become a counselor and how people often need to see themselves in a new and fresh way.
[25:27] Interview with Lisa and Diana. Lisa Hatfield and Diana Devolder came to visit me last Thursday to record their baptism testimonial videos. While they were here, we sat down and talked about how they have sometimes sold themselves short.
[40:06] 10 Key Points To Remember from Rick Warren. At the end of 2011, Pastor Rick held a video conference call with many small church pastors. I was included in that call. As pastors we live with the constant tension between the ideal (our dream for our church) and the real (how things actually are). These are 10 key points Rick reminded us about and that I thought would be worth remembering on our "selling short" podcast halfway through the year.
[55:00] Sermon: "Selling Short" - As American Christ followers we too readily give up our God given birthrights. We may not sell them for a bowl of soup, like Esau, but we do too easily sell ourselves short! Here are 4 ways we sell ourselves short. You can follow along with the YouVersion Sermon Notes here.
