Mastery

“Until you master yourself, you have no business trying to master the world. Gordon MacDonald has written: ‘Many years ago I learned their dirtiest, most crabbed secret. That their passion to change the world derived from the fact that they could not change themselves.’”

– Bob Roberts Jr. in Transformation: How Glocal Churches Transform Lives and the World

  2. Jon,

    Thanks for passing the quote on. So you are at fuller huh? I’m living here in Hollywood. I am pursuing a MAGL at Fuller right now. Maybe we can connect sometime when life slows down a bit for me. Looks like you have some interesting blogs. Peace.
