Most of our culture lives in a deficit of self-awareness. On this episode of The Art of Pastoring, Ronnie Martin and Jared Wilson explore the topic, challenging pastors to ask themselves and others "how do you experience me?"
Pastors can often be woefully unaware of how they're impacting staff and leaders in their churches, leaving a residual impact on them that can do real harm to their hearts and souls. As Jared puts it, "the way we adorn our preaching and teaching with our lives is crucial."
By cultivating a sense of self-awareness, we can be come better leaders, more faithful servants, and more loving Christians.
