Every month we like to give you a little theology to chew on . . . especially theology that has ready application in your group leadership.
This three-minute video from Andy Stanley has some truth that we too easily take for granted. We all understand truth. We all understand grace. But most of us do a mediocre job of managing the tension between the two. We're all tempted to lean in one direction or the other, even though Jesus demonstrated a full measure of both.
So, take a few minutes to watch the video. Spend some time this week reading on the first chapter of John's gospel. And reflect on these questions:
- Do I tend to emphasize truth or grace?
- How does that influence the quality of my leadership, for good and bad?
- What is one thing I can do to dial up the area in which I'm weak?
