What Makes You Weak?

No-one likes to admit a weakness.  We go to great lengths to hide our weaknesses.  When interviewing people for a new position or job, one of the most likely questions that will be asked is, what are your strengths?  What talents or abilities will you bring to our company?  Most people rather enjoy answering this question.  It gives them the opportunity to brag on themselves, and even though most people would deny it, they love talking about themselves.  In most conversations that you find yourself in, the other party isn’t listening to what you are saying; they are just simply waiting for their turn to talk and usually about themselves or some experience that they have had.  On the other hand, probably the most disliked question in an interview is, What are your weaknesses?  Who wants to talk about weaknesses in an interview?  In an interview, you are attempting to put your best foot forward, not talk about where you are weak!  Most people have covered up their weaknesses so well and often, that they forget that they even have any.  For instance, just yesterday, I was reminded of how easily a small weakness can completely dominate your actions.  Yesterday I was moving a gas grill down some steps (with help) and somehow managed to twist and pull in exactly the wrong way, and pulled a muscle or something in my lower back.  Today, I can hardly stand up straight.  Before that happened I was just like everyone else, thinking that I didn’t have a weakness to worry about.

In this podcast, we are going to look at a few things that can Continue reading What Makes You Weak?

How to get the dirt out of your life (Lesson 2)

Once you come to the realization that you have dirt in your life that needs to be cleaned up, the next step is realizing that you cannot do it yourself. You must be delivered from the dirt. Titus 2:11-14 shows us that it is by grace that we are saved and that because we are saved we should desire to live a pure life.
