Leadership Summit- Part 1, "People You Can't Help"

This past Saturday we had our bi-monthly leadership summit. Below are the notes of what I shared with our team as we head to the next level organizationally & as a church. The first part is a reminder that as much as we want to help people, there are some people that you can't help.

1. You cannot help someone who does not believe that they have a PROBLEM.
Proverbs 26:12 (NIV) “Do you see a man wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him.”
2. You cannot help someone who believes that YOU are their problem.
(example- Pharisees & Religious Leaders that crucified Jesus)
3. You cannot help someone who desires a different OUTCOME then God does.
Jonah 1:3 (NIV) “But Jonah ran away from the LORD and headed for Tarshish...”
4. You cannot help someone who refuses a SCRIPTURAL solution to their problem.
Hosea 14:9 (NIV) “Who is wise? He will realize these things. Who is discerning? He will understand them. The ways of the LORD are right; the righteous walk in them, but the rebellious stumble in them.”
5. You cannot help someone who expects You to make a greater INVESTMENT in them then they are willing to make in themselves.
Joshua 1:8, (NIV) “Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.”
6. You cannot help someone who consistently chooses RELATIONSHIPS that destroy them.
Proverbs 13:20 (NIV) “He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.”
7. You cannot help someone who leads others ASTRAY.
Galatians 5:9 (NIV) "A little yeast works through the whole batch of dough."

So Who can you Help? HUMBLE PEOPLE (see Proverbs (NLT) 9:7-12)

Life's Healing Choices, Part 6- Repairing Relationships

Week 6: REPAIRING RELATIONSHIPS- THE RELATIONSHIP CHOICE:
I evaluate all my relationships, offer forgiveness to those who have hurt me, and make amends for harm I’ve done to others, except when to do so would harm them or others.

“Happy are those who are merciful to others... Happy are those who work for peace.” Matthew 5:7,9 (TEV)

1. I can FORGIVE others because God has FORGIVEN me.
“To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable, because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.” C.S. Lewis
“Be gentle and ready to forgive; never hold grudges. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.” Colossians 3:13 (LB); Matt. 6:12; Matt. 6:14-15; Luke 6:37; James 2:13
“But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too.” Mark 11:25 (NLT)

Key thought- I will need forgiveness in the future

2. BITTERNESS doesn’t work.
“To worry yourself to death with resentment would be a foolish, sensel…

Lessons from a Hoarder (Luke 12:13-21)
13Someone out of the crowd said, "Teacher, order my brother to give me a fair share of the family inheritance." 14He replied, "Mister, what makes you think it's any of my business to be a judge or mediator for you?" 15Speaking to the people, he went on, "Take care! Protect yourself against the least bit of greed. Life is not defined by what you have, even when you have a lot."
#1- Hoarders always need MORE.
