DCL 4.1 Instruction | Acquire the Wisdom of Big-Picture Thinking

Video Presentation: Todd Mullins, Lead Pastor and Shaun Blakeney, Student Ministry Pastor, Christ Fellowship, Florida


Big-picture thinkers are never satisfied with what they already know. They look for opportunities to learn. Big-picture thinkers always are asking questions and listening to the answers. They are good listeners. Big-picture thinkers make an effort to see beyond their own world; they want to see what others are seeing. Big-picture thinkers expand their experience because they expand their world. They accomplish far more than narrow-minded people.
