Power isn’t about fighting for what you want. It’s about adjusting your actions to protect the heart-to-heart connections with your family instead. Your relationship with your children should empower them like your relationship with Christ empowers you.


Full SHOW NOTES for today's conversation


Key Takeaways


  • If you want to be a control freak, control your freaking self. 
  • One-way communication is the trademark of tyranny. Your family needs feedback loops. 
  • You’ve been empowered in your relationship with Jesus to speak with Him, share your complaints, be responsible, and have dreams. Empower your children to do the same with you. 
  • A wise and powerful man adjusts his actions to protect heart connections rather than fighting for his right to do what he wants.

Key Quotes


  • 9:13 - "God is more interested in a connection to a son or daughter. The whole purpose of the New Covenant is that connection. That's what it's for. That's the goal. The goal is access to my Father. So I have to decide, do I come into the presence of a loving father who wants to reconnect with me through repentance? Or do I come into the presence of a judge who sees a criminal?"
  • 11:42 - "People that are trapped in a tyranny, it's one way communication. There's one person, one power source, and everyone else is under the command or in the threat of punishment, that's the culture. Tyranny is we bark out commands, you obey or suffer the consequence. But when you actually empower people and honor people and a culture of honor is two powerful people, in a relationship, working out the needs of each other and the needs of the situation or the environment."
