What Lurks in the Heart of Man? Thoughts from Andy Stanley

18 Jun

Andy Stanley is the pastor at North Point Community Church, and is one of the best communicators in the church today (in my opinion).  Here is an article that talks about four things that lurk in the heart of men.

Guilt says, “I owe you.”

Anger says, “You owe me.”

Greed says, “I owe me.”

Jealousy says, “God owes me.”

These expressions alone caused me to examine my heart, and wrestle with my thoughts and assumptions.  I hope that it will cause you to do the same.  While reflecting, here are four expressions that lead to healthier living…

Grace says, “I forgive you.”

Courage says, “You support me.”

Humility says, “I know me.”

Confidence says, “God loves me.”

What a difference!
