Love Delivers Grace Not Fear

 

Some fear that grace-delivered, blood-bought, radical freedom will result in loveless license. But grace alone–redeeming, unconditional, one-way love–(not fear, not guilt, not shame) carries the power to compel heart-felt loyalty to the One who bought us.

2 Corinthians 5:14

The Voice (VOICE)

14 You see, the controlling force in our lives is the love of the Anointed One. And our confession is this: One died for all; therefore, all have died.

Don’t let personality overshadow purpose

On getting along: Don’t let personality overshadow purpose

By John C Maxwell

When someone you don’t like or respect suggests something, what is your first reaction? I bet it’s to dismiss it. You’ve heard the phrase, “Consider the source.” That’s not a bad thing to do, but if you’re not careful, you may very likely throw out the good with the bad.

Don’t let the personality of someone you work with cause you to lose sight of the greater purpose, which is to add value to the team and advance the organization. If that means listening to the ideas of people with whom you have no chemistry, or worse, you have a difficult history, so be it. Set aside your pride and listen. And in cases where you must reject the ideas of others, make sure you reject only the idea and not the person.

~ From The Maxwell Daily Reader
