- Moxie is completing whatever you started..
Paul, a strong spiritual mentor.
Paul's moxie to serve God: Relentless
Paul's every action was motivated by his service to God.
- Three types of people
Goats. Stinky, nasty, noisy, annoying; reluctant to make changes; sour, self-focussed. They taint the air with their disgusting mean attitude.
Sheep. Look a lot like goats. Are struggling with their desires vs. what God wants them to be. Need direction.
Shepherds. Live among the sheep; lead, protect. A shepherd smells like the sheep.
The shepherd is available; the shepherd is trustworthy.
The shepherd is a mentor; the shepherd has moxie, long-term commitment.
God is calling us to be shepherds, to care for others.
- Shift: From what you need to what others need.
A shepherd has a flock. No sheep: no shepherd.
Who is your flock?
