Lesson 4:
"The Power of Restraint"
(2 Corinthians 1:21-2:4)
Armchair quarterbacks are a dime a dozen. We have all sat in that chair.

"If I were in charge" is a phrase most often said by people who have never been.
What is your typical response to the shortfalls of others?
4 Common Responses:
1. A Careless Response (Us against them mindset)
2. A Conceited Response (Us above them mindset)
3. A Calculated Response (Us over them mindset)
4. A Compassionate Response (Us with them mindset)
Four Things I've Learned While Leading:
1. Waiting does not equal weakness.
2. Praying leads to responding, not reacting.
3. Restraining is less exhausting than regretting.
4. Extending grace is what grace-filled people do.
