Too Much of a Good Thing

photo-1477003580086-917054ea8418Being tough can be good…until you are too tough. It begins to impact your relationships.

Being confident can be good…until your confidence slips into a blinding self-centeredness when you believe your perspective and goals are the only good ones.

Being proud of people you love can be good…until you are too proud. It blinds you to the areas that need more honesty, confrontation, and accountability.

Consider the tipping point of your strengths, when they become weaknesses and liabilities.

Consider the tipping point of your weaknesses, when they become tools for growth that develop strengths.

Anytime I yield my weaknesses to God, he exponentially strengthens them and maximizes their impact. Anytime I yield my strengths to God, he humbles me and sifts their benefits and costs.

Whether we have too much or not enough of a good thing always makes more sense when we’re trusting a good God.
