Transcript of Thermostat vs. Thermometer

Thermostat vs. Thermometer
Leadership Principle

Thermostat vs. Thermometer
Here's how it works: a thermometer reports the temperature based on its surrounding environment.

A thermostat changes the temperature to whatever the user wants.
Which one are you?
A thermometer is inactive, a thermostat is active.

How easy is it to become thermometers in our culture? What are you willing to compromise?

Cultural Issues Today:
Gay Marriage
Promiscuous Clothing

How Can We Grow To Become Thermostats?
"Core Values"
You should have core values in your life that are obvious to the outside world and that you will not compromise on.

"A man who stands for nothing will fall for anything"
Malcom X
Where do you draw your core values from?
Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.
- C. S. Lewis

Thermostat vs. Arguer
Corrie Ten Boom
We must take our Core Values from the Word of God.
"'You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.' And, 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'"
Luke 10:27
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
James 1:27
A thermostat leader is one who knows their core values and will not compromise on them and are going to fight for what they believe is right.

Primary vs. Secondary Issues:
Make sure you do not fall into the category of arguer where you argue every small issue. If it is not in contradiction to your core values it is not an important argument to have.
Individual and Group Time
1. Take some time to look over your Core Values or create a list if you have not already done so?
-Do you have scripture that backs up your values?

2. Form Groups of 3-4 and discuss your core values.
-Explain why you chose them
-Explain what you can do to be a thermostat style leader when it comes to your core values

Does your Core Values differ to others in your group? Can you explain why you have the Core Values you have?
