ID: The True You

leave a comment »

Loved Mark Batterson’s In a Pit With a Lion On a Snowy Day.

So I have been wanting to give his first book, ID: The True You, a read.

Finally popped it open tonight. Great so far.

I noticed something in both of his books. He is great at packing wisdom into simple 1 liners.

Here are a few from my reading tonight:

If anything is going to undermine your reliance upon God and become a source of pride in your life it’s going to be your gift.

Here’s the problem with worshipping yourself. If you’re anything like me, you run out of stuff to worship real quick.

And so it is in our relationship with God: the more we grow the bigger God gets!

The significance of uniqueness is this: no one else can worship God like you.

All of us start out as one-of-a-kind originals. Too often we end up carbon copies of someone else.

You need to come to terms with who you’re not, but don’t let what you can’t do keep you from doing what you can!

You need to know that God does not call the qualified. He qualifies the called.

Everything God allows in your life today is preparation for something He wants to do in your life tomorrow!

What you need to understand is that preparation for the frontlines of life usually happens on the backside of life.

Who you are is more important than what you do because what you do will ultimately be a reflection of who you are.
