I just read this in a Church Leadership Weekly e-mail I subscribe to…and it was too good not to pass on. Yes, we’ve heard this same stuff before…but we ALL need these reminders!

These lessons come from Jimmy Draper. Many have been greatly influenced by his ministry. He is known by those close to him as a man who lives out these lessons. They are:

  • Be a person of prayer.
  • Keep your word and tell the truth
  • Put your family before your work.
  • Learn to love others, even when they seem unlovable.
  • If you must offer a critical comment to someone, do so alone.
  • Do not put yourself in places of temptation.
  • Be willing to admit your mistakes.
