Won't Be Fooled Again

Begin Again | Week 1 | Nov 8

Follow along with today's scripture: Romans 8:28

 We tend to learn from our mistakes in the areas that matter least, but repeat our mistakes in the areas that matter most.

 

Three myths that drive people to bad decisions:

 

1.      The Experience Myth

 

·        Experience on it’s own does not make you wiser. Learning from experience is what you makes wiser.

 

2.      The Know-Better Myth

 

·        Knowledge without discipline doesn’t do anything.

 

3.      The Time Myth

 

·        Mistakes feel like wasted time. But time is your friend, not your enemy.

 

Two things that emerge in successful new beginnings:

 

1.      A deeper sense of humility (“Lead with love”)

 

2.      A greater sense of purpose (“Live a bigger story”)
