LIVING YOUR STRENGTHS Part 3 - My Strengths & Your Weakness

Every person (not just you) has unique and eternal value in God’s eyes and therefore should have the same value in yours.

That was the central message of yesterday's series finale in the Living Your Strengths series.  After two weeks of talking about the importance of understanding and maximizing our own strengths, we looked at the flip side yesterday - dealing with the weaknesses of others.

It's easy to think highly of our own strengths and look down at others who don't share them.  It's easy to think that because something is easy for me or comes natural to me, then it should be the same for others as well.  But that's not the point.

Check out the message above and see why it's so important to not just ACCEPT the weaknesses of others, but to APPRECIATE them because those differences were designed by God for a specific reason.

Now it's your job to figure out what that reason is for the people in your life.

LIVING YOUR STRENGTHS Part 2 - Discovering Your Greatness

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and GREATER WORKS THAN THESE HE WILL DO, because I go to My Father.” (John 14:12)

Did you ever think about how that verse could possibly be true?  How could we do "greater works" than Jesus Himself?  The One who walked on water?  Fed the multitudes with 5 loaves and 2 fish?  Healed the sick and raised the dead?  Is it actually possible for me to do "greater works than these?"

I say YES!  And in Part 2 of the Living Your Strengths series, I tell you why I believe that.  

LIVING YOUR STRENGTHS Part 1 - The Power of the Right Fit

God didn't create you to be GOOD at everything, but He did create you to be GREAT at something.

That's the premise of the latest series at The Well called LIVING YOUR STRENGTHS.  The idea is that yes, you can do whatever you want it if you try hard enough - but that doesn't mean that you can do it WELL.  Based on the highly renowned Clifton StrengthsFinder ® assessment, the Living Your Strengths series will help you identify your God-given strengths and how to use them for your growth and for God’s glory.

God created us all uniquely – with different strengths – in order that the Body of Christ would be complete. The Church - including YOUR church - needs everyone’s strengths in order to be operating at full strength and fulfilling God's mission in the world.
