A Few Key Ideas:

  • Why Tony felt that it was important to write a book titled, People Skills For Christians
  • Christians can be authentically born again and have salvation through Jesus Christ, but not have great people skills.
  • Sometimes God will change the desires of your heart – professionally, relationally, and emotionally.
  • Maybe the Bible is more practical to everyday living than we acknowledge.
  • Are we still at 6 degrees of separation or is it less now
  • Tony explains the primary way that new opportunities come to us from God
  • TWEETABLE: “Sometimes we make it difficult for God to bless us because the right people don’t like us.”
