Great words from a past master to today's teachers

Howard Hendricks was one of the great teacher/preachers of my life span so far. I just saw a link to one of his sermons on video on YouTube, and watched it. I'm glad I did. The sermon was entitled, "The Ultimate Final," and it was from 2 Timothy 2:15. He suggested three questions anyone who would be a person of influence in a broken world should ask themselves based on this passage:
1. Is the Lord well pleased? A passion for a Person.
2. Is the work well done? A passion for excellence.
3. Is the Word well used? A passion for truth.

Great and probing questions for me and for you. Another great quote: "When I try, I fail. When I trust, He succeeds."
