Why Do We Need Help To Reach Our Full Potential? | Season 3, EP. 10

Tired of your growth stalling? Discover the surprising truth even Tom Brady & Serena Williams follow for exponential development. The arrogance to believe we can grow without accountability breeds the same pride that precedes a fall.

Welcome to the Five by the Fire Podcast

Overview
The importance of accountability for continued growth and development, even for elite performers
The connection between being a “disciple” and “discipline” – true discipleship requires ongoing training and self-control
The pitfalls of thinking you no longer need accountability or can grow alone
Examples of elite athletes like Tom Brady, Serena Williams still having coaches/trainers for accountability
Scriptural references emphasizing the need for community, togetherness and accountability (Hebrews 12:11, 1 Timothy 4:7-8)
Personal motivations behind the Five by the Fire podcast and Ordered Chaos Club blog for daily Scripture engagement

Key Quotes:

“Where I lack accountability, I soon exhibit a lack of discipline.”
“The arrogance to believe we can grow without accountability breeds the same pride that precedes a fall.”
“All discipline seems painful at the moment, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.” (Hebrews 12:11)

Call to Action:

Identify your “creative craft” that God has called you to
Build discipline around that craft through community accountability
Understand you never truly “arrive” but can have immeasurable eternal impact as a disciplined disciple

“Count the Cost” – A Daily Meditation | Season 2, Ep. 229

Today’s Readings from the Plan:
1 Samuel 9, Romans 7, ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭46, Luke 14

Focus Passage: Luke‬ ‭14‬:‭26‬-‭30‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Read the Text, Meditate on it, Pray Through It, & Contemplate the Impact

‭‭ ““If anyone comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple. Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple. For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish.’”

35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning with this Scripture he told him the good news about Jesus. 36 And as they were going along the road they came to some water, and the eunuch said, “See, here is water! What prevents me from being baptized?” 38 And he commanded the chariot to stop, and they both went down into the water, Philip and the eunuch, and he baptized him.
