THINKING MORE OF YOURSELF MORE HIGHLY – ROMANS 12:3
On 6/30/2015 1:59:39am The Lord said to me: “Sometimes Tony you think more highly of yourself (especially on social media) than you ought to, heed Paul’s advice in Romans 12:3 “For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.”
And now you are reading the same point on Fred Pruitt’s post: https://thesingleeye.wordpress.com/2015/06/27/does-it-really-work/
“And lest it seem I am giving us “credit” for sticking around, let me just say when a man thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. It was the Spirit Who held onto us, not we holding on to Him!”
Father forgive me for thinking more of myself than I ought. Thank you for the healing blood of your Son Jesus Christ, that covers my sin. Thank you for your forgiveness. Amen.
While the statement “talking isn’t training” might be obvious to many who teach as part of their work role, you’d be surprised how many agree with this statement, yet, still talk ‘at’ their students!
Sure talking is fine if your students understand the terminology and context of the training material, or already have some familiarity with what is being shared.
But in the case of teaching a senior citizen, for example, how to make a call on a smartphone that they have never used before, a visual demonstration or video might be a more effective method than talking alone.
Video isn’t always the answer, but for some it can be an effective supplement or follow-up to a hands-on demonstration.
Seems obvious right, but during the next week pay attention to the many opportunities you see where video could quickly communicate far more effectively that words alone – let me know what you see.
And, if you’d like help getting your video training project started, let me know 🙂
At the beginning of today’s recording, I share a little background and context and reflect on recent outpourings, starting with the Lord’s prayer:
Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come. Your will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.
Thy kingdom come…
The Kingdom is already here, now!!!!!
However if you are looking for the Kingdom with you physical eyes, you will never see it. Remember Jesus say “The Father is seeking those who worship Him in Spirit and Truth”?
