EP 148 – When You Blow It Big Time
Have you ever blown it? Like, really blown it. Have you blown it like this guy – https://youtu.be/MHVsBy31ISI
Let’s talk about three ways you can blow it….
Disqualifying – you do something to disqualify yourself from ministry (in some cases people debate about this one, we think scripture is clear)
Actions: repent, resign, enter into a process of spiritual not positional restoration. (don’t already have a vision of when you are able to get “back” into ministry in mind.
Consider a ministry partner like https://pastorshopenetwork.org/ and/or consider getting some time away and some pastoral support at https://practicalshepherding.com/shepherdshouse
Disconcerting – something that causes those led by you to feel unsettled. (not disqualifying)
Disappointing – Something that lets others down, misses the mark of their expectations etc.
If you’ve made a mistake on the caliber of the latter two…here are some options….
Connect with those who have been hurt or offended Matt 5:23
Correct a misstep or wrong or hurtful action – an unqualified apology Romans 12:18
Consider (for you) how this took place, what happened what was said, done etc. know the why’s behind the action. The 5 Why’s
Don’t be paralyzed by a mistake – you’re going to make them, you will not lead without offending, misstating and even doing something wrong-own it, deal with it and then move forward.
Other misc. thoughts.
Sit with your mistake and process it – think it through
You can be right but in the wrong way
