5 Ways Insecurity Damages the Team by Eric Geiger
Are you plagued with insecurity? It might be more damaging than you think, Eric explains:
Insecurity can plague leaders because leaders are constantly evaluated and continually carry the burden of responsibilities.

You Don’t Have to Hide Your Scars by Jennifer Dukes Lee
Being a believer means we don’t have to hide the broken parts of our story. We have been redeemed.

I know this sounds like preposterous gobbledygook to an unbeliever. How can you love someone best by loving someone else most? But those who have encountered the living Christ understand what I mean. They know the depth of love and breadth of grace that flows out from them toward others when they themselves are filled with love for God and all he is for them and means to them in Jesus. And they know the comparatively shallow and narrow love they feel toward others when their affection for God is ebbing.
