In Part One, Simone Monroe shared almost 40 years of leadership expertise with us about callings, ministry, and careers. We defined what true leadership means and we identified things you need to know before you start volunteering in your local church.
Now in Part Two, we discuss the roots of ministry burnout, discover how to know if we are serving out of who God created us to be, how to say no easily, and at the very end you’ll hear details on how to win your very own copy of the book Simone Monroe and Bobi Ann Allen co-authored called, Own Your Everyday Influence which can be found at everydayinfluence.org.
He replied, "Whether he is a sinner or not, I don't know. One thing I do know. I was blind but now I see!"
The wife of a man from the company of the prophets cried out to Elisha, “Your servant my husband is dead, and you know that he revered the Lord. But now his creditor is coming to take my two boys as his slaves.”
Elisha replied to her, “How can I help you? Tell me, what do you have in your house?”
“Your servant has nothing there at all,” she said, “except a small jar of olive oil.”
Elisha said, “Go around and ask all your neighbors for empty jars. Don’t ask for just a few. Then go inside and shut the door behind you and your sons. Pour oil into all the jars, and as each is filled, put it to one side.”
She left him and shut the door behind her and her sons. They brought the jars to her and she kept pouring. When all the jars were full, she said to her son, “Bring me another one.”
But he replied, “There is not a jar left.” Then the oil stopped flowing.
She went and told the man of God, and he said, “Go, sell the oil and pay your debts. You and your sons can live on what is left.”
2 Kings 4:1-7
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
To love him with all your heart, with all your understanding and with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
"Save ur energy. Guard ur time. You’re not supposed to be willing to die on every hill. Just the ones that God has called YOU to. Those are the ones we need u to climb to the pinnacle so that u can plant the stake of truth in the ground. Be wise. Be prayerful. We need u." -Priscilla Shirer
So he asked Jesse, “Are these all the sons you have?”
“There is still the youngest,” Jesse answered. “He is tending the sheep.”
Samuel said, “Send for him; we will not sit down until he arrives.”
1 Samuel 16:11
