Question: Why is that Christians always use the word "broken" to describe their situation? That sounds like we're DEFECTIVE, not "fearfully and wonderfully made."

It has taken me a LONG time to realize (through erroneous Christian "myths" and "doctrinal" errors that God created each of us just as He wanted, with strengths and weaknesses, i.e. nature AND nurture, together.

But God wants us to GROW and GROW UP, to mature in Him!

How do you build new muscles? By tearing down the old muscles, but building new muscles is done THROUGH WORK and effort! When you tear down old muscles, you build in new muscles, able to handle more. But you don't run a marathon in one weekend, you build up to it, over time.

Same with our lives. We have MANY LESSONS OF LIFE TO LEARN to reach His goals for us, to "build up the body of Christ," to be mature "in Him."

So let's stop with this fixed mindset (and part martyr or immature mindset) and latch onto a growth mindset (adult mindset) and consider that everything we go through is meant so we can become adults in Christ.

We're "fearfully and wonderfully made," that's our natural, God-given baseline, we have lots of growing to do, so we can do more for our God.

But it also requires us to be REPAIRED so we can be PREPARED to do our assignments that God has called us to do.

AWESOMESAUCE!! God provides us second, third, and more chances, so we, too, must provide others the same opportunities. Has anyone realized that when we "grieve" and "squelch" the Holy Spirit, we as Christians do that to others, too? When others don't live up to OUR expectations, we shun, shame, and squelch the Holy Spirit in them. Good job, David, for brining this to light.

Business sales or business subsidies? There is a difference.

Having read a number of marketing books since starting my own business, I have found THIS book to surpass all of them for simplicity for ANY startup business. Get it! Read it! Do it! As Ray says, "Never use these techniques to manipulate or control people to act against their own best interest." Amen!
