Increase Week in Review 10/17-10/21

Want to catch up on the latest articles by the pro’s from the past week? Here’s what they had to say:


Monday we watched former MLB pitcher Scott Linebrink speak about his rough edges:


“The stones had to be chiseled perfectly so that when they made the trek across to the temple site they would fit perfectly,” says Scott. “We are living in the quarry and we have rough edges that don’t fit quite right, but God is continually chiseling those edges to shape us so that when we get to Heaven, we will fit perfectly.”


Tuesday former NFL cornerback Charles Tillman shared about living in the Here and Now:


“God is teaching me to be in the Now. At first I was worried about how I would be able to stay busy after football. I heard many stories about men who retire, spend all their money, and have no are clueless of what to do next. I don’t want to become a stat and I don’t want to be lazy. So I’m learning to focus on what’s happening Now.”


Wednesday St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright shared how he has continued to learn new truths through old stories:


“You can read something a million times, you can hear something a million times, but until your ears, your mind, and your heart are ready to receive it, it will go in one ear and out the other. But then there’s that one time that you are ready to hear it and it sinks in—that’s when it makes a difference.”


Thursday we asked former MLB pitcher Will Startup our Five Increase Questions:


“As much as we crave attention and fame as individuals, living for Christ asks us to count the cost, love the unlovable, and live a life of service to others. This can only be carried out with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Increase of Christ means focusing on building his Kingdom and not my own.”


Friday Philadelphia Eagles Chaplain Pastor Ted Winsley shared about Our Greatest Need:


“What many men don’t realize is that it’s not money, fame, or contracts that make them a man. It’s their personal relationship with God alone that makes them a man. All men long to feel a sense of honor, just as all women have a great need to feel secure. And no people or community can satisfy those needs, only God can.”
