Lessons from Chuck Swindoll

Chuck Swindoll is now in his seventies. He has been both President and Chancellor at Dallas Theological Seminary, Pastor at Stonebriar Community Church (where he currently preaches 3 morning services a Sunday), as well as a prolific writer and radio personality. His life and ministry have been rich. We should listen to any wisdom he provides. Here are his 10 lessons from 50 years of ministry:

It’s lonely to lead
It’s dangerous to succeed
It’s hardest at home
It’s essential to be real
It’s painful to obey
Brokenness and failure are necessary
Attitude overshadows actions
Integrity eclipses image
God’s way is always better than my way
Christlikeness begins and ends with humility

Which of these resonates most with you?
