Taking The Plunge

Taking The Plunge

We all want something that works for us, but so many times we look in the wrong places.

Hebrews 10:24-25
24 And let us consider how to stir up (provoke) one another to love and good works, 25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

    1. Driven/Dominant/Type A — they want a challenge, they want to be pushed, they thrive in competition; Fear – failure
    2. Inspired/Extrovert/Story Teller/Social Connecter — they crave crowd, love meeting new people, love thinking outside the box .. most important thing FUN…; Fear – not being liked
    3. Steady/Supportive/Calm/Peacemaker – they love the people they trust. They are consistent. They will last the longest because their temperament is not volatile; Fear – conflict
    4. Complex/Creative/Analytical/Researcher – process matters. Perfection is attainable and expected. It is most important to be right. I want to know my role, who is in charge and who I am in charge of; Fear – change/loss of control

    1. We all need love
  4. WE ALL NEED SAVING
