Not Toasting my Soul

Yesterday I spoke of Keeping my Soul. Today I was able to read a great post today from Geoff Surratt, pastor of Seacost Church.  While the back-story differs from my aim,  Geoff provides some practical help in guarding your soul.

  1. If you think you aren’t vulnerable, you are already toast
  2. If you think you can burn the candle at both ends, you are already toast
  3. If you think you can do ministry without accountability, you are already toast
  4. If you think you don’t need safeguards, you are already toast
  5. If you think it’s about you, you are already toast

As well as some thoughts on what to do to keep from burning:

  1. Slow Down
  2. Open Up
  3. Count the Cost

Best line: You don’t wake up one day and decide to shipwreck your life. You do it one stupid decision at a time
