Stretch Your Mind
I am at the Next Level Conference at Savannah Christian Church this week with part of our staff. It's always a challenging and encouraging time when you are exposed to great leadership. It's very practical and also mentally stimulating with a variety of experiences. Part of the difficulty of the week is gathering all of this information and then determining what to do with it once you return home.
Any learning experience poses the same dilemma. There is a need to be receptive to innovation and personal transformation while not overreacting to what we hear. It's the discerning mind that is able to sort through, find the most valuable piece of knowledge, and then put it into practice for lasting change. When we aren't able to do this effectively we end up hearing a lot of good information and never changing anything at all.
