Personal Plumb Lines

Every once in awhile you have to remember who you are. These are a few plumb lines that I use to remind me and others about why I do what I do. What are yours? Who are you? What beliefs and commitments about you shape your actions and decisions?
  1. Start with God, because God starts with God.
  2. Straight Bible, no chaser.
  3. Think deeply, live simply.
  4. Everyone needs Jesus.
  5. Speak to real people: People and place always go together.
  6. The Spirit of God uses the word of God in the mouths of the people of God to change us.
  7. Be generally irreverent about everything that doesn’t matter.
  8. Get people together: wisdom is passed on between generations.
  9. Persevere through pain.
  10. Lead from the middle: give up neither leading nor participating.
