Sub-title: Overcoming Pressure, Co-Dependency, and the Fear of Man.

Pretty much says it all.

As Christians, we are not empty cups that need to be filled by other people or things. God is our resource.

When we fear man, to the point of idolatry, God indeed is small. The idols we worship, soon own us.

Solution:
Know, grow in the Fear of God.
Here he does a really good job of talking of the spectrum of the topic of fear of God, from "reverence" to abject "terror" in relation to God. Good thoughts.

What we "need", what controls us, where we put our trust - all are the same thing.
