Jon Acuff spoke Friday morning. Here are a few of my notes:
Making things is a process. How do you not get lost in the process?
1. Remember who you are.
You are not the things you make. Your identity is not tied to those things. You are NEW. God makes you new.
Story about the prodigal son. He wanted to come back as a hired hand. The problem is that he couldn’t become a hired hand. His identity was son.
Don’t compare to others.
2. Remember who God is.
Sometimes we think, “If I make a bigger platform then God will get more glory.” God’s glory is not connected to your platform.
God will not be handcuffed by your failures or unleashed by your successes.
The older brother in the prodigal son story missed the story.
God fixed a problem with a party. Who does that?
I hope you make a lot of things, but don’t forget who you are. You are a son, a daughter, an heir of the King.
