Here’s my semi-weekly Friday recap of stuff I starred in Google reader, clipped into Evernote, or favorited on Twitter.
- 27% of Americans didn’t read a single book last year. If you want a big leg up on 27% of the competition in the job market, go read a book. (via @kennysilva)
- Likability is the most important quality in a pastor. If people don’t like you it doesn’t matter how good you preach. – Junior Hill (via @sidekickceo)
- Warren Bird from #leadnet says that the average person in the world is 29, makes just over $10,000 a year and doesn’t have Internet access.
- “A horse is prepared for the day of battle but victory comes from the Lord.” Proverbs 31:21
- Michael Hyatt talks about the value of paying for coaching and learning. I believe this.
- Modern Reject asks “who is your pastor” and notes that we have confused the office of pastor with the ministry of pastor. Brilliant.
- Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard. – Tim Tebow. (I still don’t like him because he’s a Gator.)
- When a person is down in the world, an ounce of help is better than a pound of preaching. -Edward Bulwer-Lytton. I know I’ve needed this over the last 8 months.
- Your budget is a theological statement. It says what you value. – Alan Hirsch
- 232 sand dollars.
- I’m becoming more and more convinced that churches want volunteers and not leaders. Empowering leaders means you have to give up control.
