Chuck Swindoll at Catalyst 09

At Catalyst they gave a lifetime achievement award to Chuck Swindoll. They presented him with a video tribute, plaque, and thunderous applause. He told about the day the Catalyst team called to inform him of this honor. “The guy on the phone told me what they wanted to do. I was trying to talk him out of it and he said, “DUDE YOU ARE THE GODFATHER TO US.” I have included some great “take aways” from his talk.

On Leadership

1.    It is lonely to lead.

2.    It is dangerous to succeed.

3.    It is hardest at home.

4.    It is essential to be real.

5.    It is painful to obey.

6.    Brokenness and failure are necessary.

7.    My attitude is more important than my actions.

8.    Integrity eclipses image.

9.    God’s way is always better than my way.

10.  Christ-likeness begins and ends with humility.
