I have spent the last week in a myriad of personality profiling assessments. I'm jacked up!
The usefulness of this line of testing is for me to simply see in a new light who I already am, what my tendencies are, and how those qualitites are both strengths and weakness within the context of ministry as God presents people and situations to bring Him glory.
I am a Dominating, Conversing, Blunt, Active, Resourceful, Directing, Engaging, Challenging, Spontaneous, Daring, Practical, and Social kinda guy. But don't let that fool you.
The bottom line is I have a history of trying again and again to do what I want to do and hoping God will bless the effort. What I need to hear and often be reminded of is Samuel's words to Saul, "WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?" In an effort to get the results, Saul does a good, foolish thing. He sacrifices. And in so doing he works his way out of a kingdom.
Oh yeah, I can relate...
