Speed Racers are just getting started at 60 mph. Racers are built for speed, topping out at over 200 mpg. While you can go fast, it’s easy to run out of gas—or worse, crash!
At the 2018 XP-Seminar, David Fletcher gave a keynote on Start Your Engines: Maximizing Speed for Business Brain or Pastoral Heart. The imagery was from Soapbox Racers, Trucks and Speed Racers.
Only one Person was super gifted at both Business Brain and Pastoral Heart. Read the parables to see how sharp Jesus is. Since you are not Jesus, chances are 100% that you are strong in either Business Brain or Pastoral Heart—but not both.
Are you a Speed Racer in your Business Brain or in your Pastoral Heart?
We all have areas where we excel, speeding down the road.
With either a Pastoral Heart or Business Brain, we accelerate past others with our giftedness.
A problem occurs when we run out of gas or crash.
The Pastoral Heart
You care deeply for people. You want to counsel, coach and mentor others. You want to be with them in their challenges, hurts and pain. You are a naturally-gifted shepherd.
I will give you shepherds after My own heart, who will lead you with knowledge and understanding.
Jeremiah 3:15 NIV®
The Business Brain
You have strong overseeing abilities. You want to bring organizational security and grow the church. Money is a tool to be well invested in strategic ministry. You want others to maximize their skills. You are a naturally-gifted organizational leader.
But choose from the people capable men, God-fearing, men of truth, those who hate bribes, and put them over the people.
Exodus 18:21 Net Bible®
