When I am making a purchase, I tend to do my homework.
For examples, when I am buying tires I research them — to death. Which tire has the longest life? Which brand has the best warranty? What about traction? Will it do well in snow? What about noise? I hate unnecessary road noise. What about the cool factor? What about price? Value?
And often, I find myself plagued with indecisiveness.
When it comes to such things, indecisiveness can be an inconvenience. When it comes to life-choices — who to marry, where to go to college, employment choices, whether to follow Christ — indecisiveness in these areas can be troublesome to the point of problematic.
This podcast explains how indecisiveness can be a lid, holding us back from being who God wants us to be.

I was texting with my daughter-in-law the other day and she asked me my opinion on a theologian we have both been kind of checking out. The theologian, who I won’t name, is not from “our tribe”, so she asked, “What do you think about him?”
My reply — typed and sent without a second thought — went like this: He doesn’t know what he believes.
Afterward, I thought to myself, “Steve – you are so arrogant!!!”
In those moments, and countless others, I see arrogance in my own heart.
And I hate it.
And chances are, if you have a genuine sense of self-awareness, you see arrogance in your heart as well.
That arrogance can be a lid. It can hold us back from being who God wants us to be.
This podcast talks about how to remove the lid of arrogance from our lives so that we can become the person God has for us to become.
