I love to listen to Pastor Bob Coy’s Acitve Word podcasts when I travel, and recently he had the following to say about broken vs. unbroken people that he referenced from a Moody’s Magazine article.
It seemed worthy of posting here so I can reference it in the future.
|Prideful and Unbroken Person||Humble and Broken Person|
|focuses on the failures of others||overwhelmed with a sense of their own spiritual need|
|maintains control (has to be their way)||surrenders control and looks for the best way|
|feels confident in how much they know||humbled by how much they have to learn|
|rebelious towards others in authority||very submissive to authority|
|defensive when criticized||receives criticizm with a hungry and open heart|
|works to maintain image, protect reputation||dies to his own reputation|
|has a hard time saying “i am wrong”||quick to admit failure and seek forgiveness|
|waits for others to come and ask for forgiveness||takes initiative to be reconciled|
|believes the “ministry is priviledged to have me”||believes “i don’t deserve to serve in this ministry”|
