Notes & Transcripts

  1. We’re not as good at something as someone else we know.
  2. We don’t have all the resources we think we need.
  3. We figure that the chances of failing and looking like losers are too high.

But do you see the misconceptions hiding in all these reasons?  We’re really saying:

  1. God only uses the best and brightest.
  2. He only uses us when every last thing is in place.
  3. He only brings glory to Himself when we…bring glory to ourselves too.  (Ouch)
