  • The Potter's Touch
  • 00:00:19.240 --> 00:00:21.280
  • - Bishop T.D. Jakes: And when
  • 00:00:26.140 --> 00:00:27.090
  • he talks about fornicators and
  • 00:00:27.090 --> 00:00:29.100
  • profane, filthy people who will
  • 00:00:29.100 --> 00:00:32.040
  • do just anything, he illustrates
  • 00:00:32.040 --> 00:00:35.030
  • it.
  • 00:00:35.030 --> 00:00:35.240
  • Now, I didn't write this.
  • 00:00:35.240 --> 00:00:36.150
  • I'm just preachin' the book.
  • 00:00:36.150 --> 00:00:37.200
  • He illustrates it with a guy
  • 00:00:37.200 --> 00:00:40.200
  • named Esau, and so I've been
  • 00:00:41.130 --> 00:00:44.130
  • studying and thinking and
  • 00:00:44.130 --> 00:00:46.030
  • meditating on Esau all week.
  • 00:00:46.030 --> 00:00:48.120
  • Esau, if you hadn't been raised
  • 00:00:48.120 --> 00:00:49.260
  • in church, it's not a common
  • 00:00:49.260 --> 00:00:51.050
  • name.
  • 00:00:51.050 --> 00:00:52.140
  • You don't hear much talked
  • 00:00:52.140 --> 00:00:53.000
  • about.
  • 00:00:53.000 --> 00:00:54.010
  • You hear 'em preach more about
  • 00:00:54.010 --> 00:00:55.100
  • Jacob--Abraham, Isaac, and
  • 00:00:55.100 --> 00:00:57.110
  • Jacob.
  • 00:00:57.110 --> 00:00:58.130
  • You hear a lot about Jacob.
  • 00:00:58.130 --> 00:00:59.160
  • You don't hear much about Esau,
  • 00:00:59.160 --> 00:01:01.010
  • but in all rights, it should've
  • 00:01:01.010 --> 00:01:03.040
  • been the God of Abraham, the God
  • 00:01:03.040 --> 00:01:04.220
  • of Isaac, and the God of Esau.
  • 00:01:05.200 --> 00:01:08.200
  • Jacob wasn't supposed to be in
  • 00:01:08.200 --> 00:01:09.270
  • the list.
  • 00:01:09.270 --> 00:01:11.000
  • It was supposed to be Esau, who
  • 00:01:11.000 --> 00:01:13.030
  • was an heir, not only to the
  • 00:01:13.030 --> 00:01:15.010
  • spiritual, the spiritual
  • 00:01:15.010 --> 00:01:16.090
  • heritage of Israel, but also the
  • 00:01:16.090 --> 00:01:18.040
  • financial benefits of being the
  • 00:01:18.040 --> 00:01:20.130
  • grandson of Abraham should've
  • 00:01:20.130 --> 00:01:22.280
  • fallen to Esau.
  • 00:01:22.280 --> 00:01:24.230
  • With that came the conveying of
  • 00:01:24.230 --> 00:01:26.080
  • property rights, goods,
  • 00:01:26.080 --> 00:01:28.090
  • services, spiritual
  • 00:01:28.090 --> 00:01:29.260
  • opportunities, intellectualism,
  • 00:01:29.260 --> 00:01:31.110
  • and influence with God.
  • 00:01:31.110 --> 00:01:33.180
  • All of that was to be gained,
  • 00:01:33.180 --> 00:01:35.200
  • but Esau lost it all 'cause he
  • 00:01:38.040 --> 00:01:41.040
  • was hungry.
  • 00:01:41.070 --> 00:01:44.070
  • He'd been out hunting all day,
  • 00:01:44.070 --> 00:01:45.150
  • and he was hungry, and he came
  • 00:01:45.150 --> 00:01:47.250
  • back, and his brother Jacob had
  • 00:01:47.250 --> 00:01:50.160
  • a bowl of soup, a bowl of
  • 00:01:53.110 --> 00:01:56.110
  • porridge, and because he was
  • 00:01:56.110 --> 00:01:58.130
  • hungry, Jacob made a deal with
  • 00:02:02.270 --> 00:02:05.270
  • Esau.
  • 00:02:05.270 --> 00:02:07.240
  • He kind of--I was gon' say he
  • 00:02:07.240 --> 00:02:09.250
  • tricked him, but I think we give
  • 00:02:09.250 --> 00:02:11.110
  • Jacob too much credit, because
  • 00:02:11.110 --> 00:02:13.090
  • Esau was just stupid, you know?
  • 00:02:17.030 --> 00:02:20.030
  • Come on, let's just be fair.
  • 00:02:20.090 --> 00:02:23.090
  • If I tell you--you rolled up in
  • 00:02:23.180 --> 00:02:26.180
  • some big ole Rolls Royce or
  • 00:02:26.180 --> 00:02:29.070
  • somethin', and I say, "Michael,
  • 00:02:29.070 --> 00:02:30.240
  • I'll trade you this handkerchief
  • 00:02:30.240 --> 00:02:32.140
  • for that car," I didn't trick
  • 00:02:32.140 --> 00:02:34.120
  • You're just stupid.
  • 00:02:45.120 --> 00:02:48.120
  • The boy offered him some soup in
  • 00:02:48.150 --> 00:02:51.150
  • exchange for his birthright.
  • 00:02:51.150 --> 00:02:54.080
  • His birthright, all the rights
  • 00:02:54.080 --> 00:02:57.030
  • and benefits, and all of this
  • 00:02:57.030 --> 00:02:58.270
  • future and all of his destiny is
  • 00:02:58.270 --> 00:03:01.020
  • being compromised for a bowl of
  • 00:03:01.060 --> 00:03:04.060
  • soup, and Esau took it, not
  • 00:03:04.190 --> 00:03:07.190
  • because Jacob was so good at the
  • 00:03:07.190 --> 00:03:09.140
  • trick, but Esau was stupid,
  • 00:03:09.140 --> 00:03:11.280
  • because he was--allowed himself
  • 00:03:11.280 --> 00:03:14.050
  • to make a permanent decision
  • 00:03:14.050 --> 00:03:16.120
  • over a temporary situation, and
  • 00:03:19.170 --> 00:03:22.170
  • I wanna warn you against making
  • 00:03:22.170 --> 00:03:24.010
  • permanent decisions over
  • 00:03:24.010 --> 00:03:26.180
  • temporary situations, and that's
  • 00:03:26.180 --> 00:03:29.130
  • a good place for you to write,
  • 00:03:29.130 --> 00:03:30.270
  • "This too shall pass."
  • 00:03:30.270 --> 00:03:33.070
  • Hunger will pass.
  • 00:03:33.070 --> 00:03:34.240
  • You'll get another opportunity.
  • 00:03:34.240 --> 00:03:36.050
  • Frustration will pass.
  • 00:03:36.050 --> 00:03:37.240
  • You'll get another opportunity.
  • 00:03:37.240 --> 00:03:39.070
  • Loneliness will pass.
  • 00:03:39.070 --> 00:03:40.240
  • You'll get another opportunity,
  • 00:03:40.240 --> 00:03:42.180
  • but the enemy offers you a
  • 00:03:42.180 --> 00:03:44.000
  • trick.
  • 00:03:44.000 --> 00:03:45.000
  • The trick is not to be
  • 00:03:45.000 --> 00:03:46.050
  • glorified.
  • 00:03:46.050 --> 00:03:47.160
  • It's just stupidity you have to
  • 00:03:47.160 --> 00:03:49.060
  • watch out for, because the trick
  • 00:03:49.060 --> 00:03:51.010
  • is really not that good when you
  • 00:03:51.010 --> 00:03:53.250
  • consider that you are giving
  • 00:03:53.250 --> 00:03:55.100
  • away your future, givin' away
  • 00:03:58.260 --> 00:04:01.280
  • the next 30 years for the next
  • 00:04:01.280 --> 00:04:03.130
  • 30 minutes.
  • 00:04:05.260 --> 00:04:08.260
  • So that's what the text means,
  • 00:04:12.190 --> 00:04:15.190
  • but what is the most disturbing
  • 00:04:16.050 --> 00:04:19.050
  • to me is not that Esau did
  • 00:04:19.060 --> 00:04:22.060
  • something stupid because, if the
  • 00:04:22.060 --> 00:04:23.290
  • truth be told--and it seldom
  • 00:04:23.290 --> 00:04:26.030
  • is--all of us, in one way or
  • 00:04:28.060 --> 00:04:31.060
  • another, have done something
  • 00:04:36.220 --> 00:04:39.220
  • stupid.
  • 00:04:40.210 --> 00:04:43.210
  • Maybe I'm the only one.
  • 00:04:43.210 --> 00:04:44.150
  • I have done somethin' so stupid
  • 00:04:45.140 --> 00:04:48.140
  • that I graduated magna cum laude
  • 00:04:51.030 --> 00:04:54.030
  • from Stupid University with
  • 00:04:54.030 --> 00:04:56.290
  • honors.
  • 00:04:56.290 --> 00:04:59.180
  • I appalled myself, sitting on
  • 00:04:59.180 --> 00:05:02.150
  • the side of the bed, saying,
  • 00:05:02.150 --> 00:05:04.040
  • "How in the world could you do
  • 00:05:04.090 --> 00:05:07.090
  • something that--"
  • 00:05:09.220 --> 00:05:12.220
  • I guess I'm all alone, but pray
  • 00:05:12.220 --> 00:05:14.040
  • for me.
  • 00:05:14.040 --> 00:05:16.270
  • What is disturbing in the text,
  • 00:05:16.270 --> 00:05:19.160
  • to me, it's not that Esau did
  • 00:05:19.160 --> 00:05:21.070
  • something stupid.
  • 00:05:21.070 --> 00:05:22.170
  • I'm not suggesting that my
  • 00:05:22.170 --> 00:05:23.210
  • stupidity vindicates his.
  • 00:05:23.210 --> 00:05:25.190
  • Perhaps it is the fact that
  • 00:05:25.190 --> 00:05:27.140
  • misery enjoys company that I
  • 00:05:27.140 --> 00:05:28.270
  • allow myself to sit on the bench
  • 00:05:28.270 --> 00:05:30.120
  • with him, but be that as it may,
  • 00:05:30.120 --> 00:05:32.190
  • I'm just pointing to the fact
  • 00:05:32.190 --> 00:05:33.250
  • that the human conundrum
  • 00:05:33.250 --> 00:05:35.230
  • suggests that it is very
  • 00:05:35.230 --> 00:05:37.170
  • difficult to be a human and live
  • 00:05:37.170 --> 00:05:39.070
  • a long life and not do something
  • 00:05:39.070 --> 00:05:40.180
  • stupid.
  • 00:05:40.230 --> 00:05:43.230
  • That's what bothers me about the
  • 00:05:43.230 --> 00:05:45.120
  • arrogance with which we talk
  • 00:05:45.120 --> 00:05:46.280
  • about other people's stupidity,
  • 00:05:46.280 --> 00:05:48.240
  • seemingly having amnesia over
  • 00:05:48.270 --> 00:05:51.270
  • our own.
  • 00:05:52.050 --> 00:05:55.050
  • I think, "Wasn't it just
  • 00:05:55.050 --> 00:05:56.060
  • yesterday?"
  • 00:05:56.060 --> 00:05:58.250
  • Go, and look at your family
  • 00:05:58.250 --> 00:05:59.240
  • I didn't take my medication this
  • 00:06:08.150 --> 00:06:09.150
  • morning, so it's gon' be rough.
  • 00:06:09.160 --> 00:06:12.160
  • They was rushing me, Mary Kay.
  • 00:06:12.160 --> 00:06:13.290
  • It's gon' be rough.
  • 00:06:13.290 --> 00:06:15.010
  • I didn't get to take it.
  • 00:06:15.010 --> 00:06:16.050
  • But, you know, Esau did
  • 00:06:16.050 --> 00:06:19.000
  • somethin' stupid.
  • 00:06:19.000 --> 00:06:20.030
  • Now, everybody in here has made
  • 00:06:20.030 --> 00:06:22.110
  • a dumb choice about something or
  • 00:06:22.110 --> 00:06:25.090
  • someone or some moment, and you
  • 00:06:27.240 --> 00:06:30.240
  • live with the consequences--that
  • 00:06:31.210 --> 00:06:34.210
  • decision.
  • 00:06:34.210 --> 00:06:36.140
  • Nine months later or three
  • 00:06:36.140 --> 00:06:38.030
  • months later or three years
  • 00:06:38.030 --> 00:06:40.060
  • later, we all live with the
  • 00:06:40.060 --> 00:06:42.140
  • consequences of our own
  • 00:06:42.140 --> 00:06:44.110
  • What is disturbing to me about
  • 00:06:46.120 --> 00:06:47.050
  • the text is not the stupidity
  • 00:06:47.050 --> 00:06:48.180
  • with which Esau made the
  • 00:06:48.180 --> 00:06:50.110
  • decision, but it is rather that,
  • 00:06:50.110 --> 00:06:52.200
  • when Esau got ready to change
  • 00:06:52.200 --> 00:06:54.220
  • it, the Bible said he sought
  • 00:06:56.110 --> 00:06:59.110
  • with repentance, with many
  • 00:06:59.110 --> 00:07:01.110
  • tears, and found it not, and
  • 00:07:03.080 --> 00:07:06.080
  • lost his future, not just
  • 00:07:06.080 --> 00:07:08.280
  • because he did something stupid,
  • 00:07:08.280 --> 00:07:11.100
  • but because he was unable to
  • 00:07:11.100 --> 00:07:13.190
  • change what he had set in motion
  • 00:07:13.290 --> 00:07:16.290
  • over his life.
  • 00:07:16.290 --> 00:07:19.240
  • It is that, that I wanna deal
  • 00:07:19.240 --> 00:07:21.070
  • with today.
  • 00:07:21.280 --> 00:07:24.280
  • It is not the mediocre ideology
  • 00:07:24.280 --> 00:07:26.280
  • of doing something stupid,
  • 00:07:26.280 --> 00:07:29.040
  • because that is common to all of
  • 00:07:29.040 --> 00:07:30.110
  • us, but it is the crisis of
  • 00:07:30.140 --> 00:07:33.140
  • being caught in a system of
  • 00:07:33.140 --> 00:07:36.040
  • stupidity for which you cannot
  • 00:07:36.040 --> 00:07:38.110
  • escape.
  • 00:07:38.110 --> 00:07:40.150
  • Though you seek it with many
  • 00:07:40.150 --> 00:07:42.220
  • tears, you feel trapped to
  • 00:07:42.270 --> 00:07:45.270
  • repeat the same mistake over and
  • 00:07:45.270 --> 00:07:48.220
  • over and over again, and you
  • 00:07:49.040 --> 00:07:52.040
  • don't know how to get out.
  • 00:07:53.040 --> 00:07:56.040
  • The difference between us is not
  • 00:07:56.040 --> 00:07:57.210
  • that we haven't done something
  • 00:07:57.210 --> 00:07:59.040
  • stupid.
  • 00:07:59.040 --> 00:08:00.060
  • We've all admitted it.
  • 00:08:00.060 --> 00:08:02.100
  • But some of us get stuck on
  • 00:08:02.100 --> 00:08:04.070
  • stupid, and we keep going after
  • 00:08:07.260 --> 00:08:10.260
  • the same kind of person or the
  • 00:08:10.260 --> 00:08:12.230
  • same--we keep living beyond our
  • 00:08:17.070 --> 00:08:20.070
  • means.
  • 00:08:20.070 --> 00:08:21.080
  • We keep falling prey to the same
  • 00:08:21.080 --> 00:08:22.280
  • mistake, and in spite of our
  • 00:08:22.280 --> 00:08:25.040
  • desire to change it, this is the
  • 00:08:25.040 --> 00:08:28.010
  • frustration of life--to desire
  • 00:08:28.010 --> 00:08:30.160
  • to change.
  • 00:08:30.160 --> 00:08:32.050
  • It is not frustrating to be
  • 00:08:32.050 --> 00:08:33.150
  • happy, to be down, but to desire
  • 00:08:33.150 --> 00:08:35.080

  • That Scripture always bothered
  • 00:08:40.040 --> 00:08:41.270
  • me that he sought repentance
  • 00:08:41.270 --> 00:08:43.290
  • with many tears and found it not
  • 00:08:43.290 --> 00:08:46.070
  • and lost his inheritance, and he
  • 00:08:46.230 --> 00:08:49.230
  • is scarcely mentioned at all.
  • 00:08:49.260 --> 00:08:52.260
  • Though he was destined to be in
  • 00:08:52.260 --> 00:08:55.010
  • the lineage of greatness, he
  • 00:08:55.010 --> 00:08:57.010
  • forfeited his greatest moment
  • 00:08:57.010 --> 00:08:59.250
  • over a bowl of soup and an
  • 00:08:59.250 --> 00:09:02.150
  • inability to correct a pattern,
  • 00:09:02.150 --> 00:09:05.150
  • a pathology of dysfunctional
  • 00:09:05.150 --> 00:09:07.010
  • decisions.
  • 00:09:07.010 --> 00:09:09.250
  • That's what this text is all
  • 00:09:09.250 --> 00:09:10.290
  • about, and only a novice would
  • 00:09:11.040 --> 00:09:14.040
  • take it anywhere else.
  • 00:09:15.220 --> 00:09:18.220
  • It is there that I wanna focus
  • 00:09:18.220 --> 00:09:20.240
  • my attention, because the truth
  • 00:09:20.240 --> 00:09:23.160
  • of the matter is all of us know
  • 00:09:23.160 --> 00:09:25.020
  • people who are stuck, stuck in a
  • 00:09:25.280 --> 00:09:28.280
  • pattern.
  • 00:09:28.280 --> 00:09:30.020
  • You go back through your whole
  • 00:09:30.020 --> 00:09:31.080
  • life and see Dumb, Dumb, Jr.,
  • 00:09:31.080 --> 00:09:32.270
  • Dumb III, Dumb IV, Dumb de
  • 00:09:36.010 --> 00:09:39.010
  • And the real funny one is that
  • 00:09:53.160 --> 00:09:55.000
  • people been married, like, four
  • 00:09:55.000 --> 00:09:56.020
  • or five times, and they keep
  • 00:09:56.020 --> 00:09:57.130
  • marrying the same person with a
  • 00:09:57.130 --> 00:09:58.250
  • different name.
  • 00:09:58.250 --> 00:10:00.270
  • It's really funny.
  • 00:10:00.270 --> 00:10:03.070
  • "Didn't you learn with the first
  • 00:10:03.270 --> 00:10:06.270

  • 00:10:07.240 --> 00:10:10.240
  • Why would you go and be
  • 00:10:10.240 --> 00:10:12.020
  • attracted to another serial
  • 00:10:12.020 --> 00:10:13.220
  • killer?
  • 00:10:13.220 --> 00:10:15.120
  • You thought you were gonna
  • 00:10:15.120 --> 00:10:16.110
  • Dumb, Jr. And what I wanted to
  • 00:10:24.150 --> 00:10:27.150
  • focus on is Esau sought
  • 00:10:27.210 --> 00:10:30.210
  • repentance.
  • 00:10:30.210 --> 00:10:31.260
  • The word "repentance,"
  • 00:10:31.260 --> 00:10:34.160
  • "metanoia" in the Greek, the
  • 00:10:34.180 --> 00:10:37.180
  • word "repentance," "metanoia,"
  • 00:10:37.180 --> 00:10:40.060
  • means "to change your mind."
  • 00:10:42.090 --> 00:10:45.090
  • So he sought a change of mind
  • 00:10:45.250 --> 00:10:48.250
  • with many tears and found it
  • 00:10:48.250 --> 00:10:51.050
  • not.
  • 00:10:51.180 --> 00:10:54.180
  • He sought a change of
  • 00:10:54.180 --> 00:10:56.280
  • intelligence with a lot of
  • 00:10:56.280 --> 00:10:59.150
  • emotions and found it not.
  • 00:11:02.060 --> 00:11:05.060
  • He sought repentance with many
  • 00:11:05.060 --> 00:11:06.270
  • tears and found it not.
  • 00:11:08.010 --> 00:11:11.010
  • So an emotional response does
  • 00:11:11.010 --> 00:11:13.110
  • Have you ever seen
  • 00:11:22.020 --> 00:11:22.260
  • people--they--now, I admit, I've
  • 00:11:22.260 --> 00:11:24.260
  • been dumb about this, too,
  • 00:11:24.260 --> 00:11:27.020
  • because I'm a sucker for some
  • 00:11:27.020 --> 00:11:28.200
  • tears 'cause generally, see, I
  • 00:11:28.250 --> 00:11:31.250
  • don't cry--only in cases of
  • 00:11:31.250 --> 00:11:33.110
  • extremes, and so I'm impressed
  • 00:11:33.110 --> 00:11:36.090
  • when people cry, and assumin'
  • 00:11:36.090 --> 00:11:38.110
  • that they are like me at the
  • 00:11:38.110 --> 00:11:39.200
  • point, like, if I cry and tell
  • 00:11:39.200 --> 00:11:42.080
  • you I love you, I mean, it's
  • 00:11:42.080 --> 00:11:44.050
  • bad.

  • 00:11:48.200 --> 00:11:49.220
  • I mean, it is just sick, and if

  • 00:14:52.130 --> 00:14:53.150
  • use it, and I saved the

  • illustration.
  • 00:14:54.170 --> 00:14:55.130

  • really good for what he was
  • 00:14:56.090 --> 00:14:57.200

  • what I'm saying.
  • 00:15:05.060 --> 00:15:07.150
  • You see, if you go on a
  • 00:15:07.150 --> 00:15:09.120
  • computer, they have on a
  • 00:15:09.120 --> 00:15:11.280
  • computer what they call "default
  • 00:15:11.280 --> 00:15:13.030
  • settings," so whether you're in
  • 00:15:13.080 --> 00:15:16.080
  • Microsoft or whatever it is,
  • 00:15:16.080 --> 00:15:18.100
  • whatever program it is, or any
  • 00:15:18.100 --> 00:15:19.220
  • kind of program, it has a
  • 00:15:19.220 --> 00:15:21.070
  • default.
  • 00:15:21.070 --> 00:15:22.190
  • The default sets in the computer
  • 00:15:23.030 --> 00:15:26.030
  • some principles and ideas to
  • 00:15:26.030 --> 00:15:27.230
  • which the computer is committed.
  • 00:15:27.230 --> 00:15:30.050
  • It does not mean that you can't
  • 00:15:30.050 --> 00:15:31.180
  • function outside of the default.
  • 00:15:31.180 --> 00:15:34.050
  • It just means that, even if you
  • 00:15:34.050 --> 00:15:36.000
  • deviate from the default, the
  • 00:15:36.000 --> 00:15:38.060
  • computer will automatically take
  • 00:15:38.060 --> 00:15:40.250
  • you back to default settings,
  • 00:15:41.180 --> 00:15:44.180
  • and if you don't want it to do
  • 00:15:44.180 --> 00:15:45.210
  • that, it's more than changing
  • 00:15:45.210 --> 00:15:47.290
  • the font.
  • 00:15:47.290 --> 00:15:49.030
  • So type for me, type.
  • 00:15:55.050 --> 00:15:58.010
  • We're gonna show you somethin'.
  • 00:15:58.010 --> 00:16:00.040
  • "There's nothing as powerful as
  • 00:16:00.040 --> 00:16:02.260
  • a changed mind."
  • 00:16:02.260 --> 00:16:05.100
  • Okay, now put it in the other
  • 00:16:05.270 --> 00:16:08.270
  • way.
  • 00:16:08.270 --> 00:16:10.050
  • Okay, "There's nothing as
  • 00:16:10.050 --> 00:16:11.070
  • powerful as a changed mind."
  • 00:16:11.070 --> 00:16:13.000
  • All we did was change the font.
  • 00:16:13.000 --> 00:16:15.050
  • We changed the font.
  • 00:16:15.050 --> 00:16:17.140
  • And while we're typin', whatever
  • 00:16:17.140 --> 00:16:19.150
  • we type in, this font will
  • 00:16:19.150 --> 00:16:22.000
  • appear in this font, and it will
  • 00:16:23.010 --> 00:16:26.010
  • appear that it has changed, but
  • 00:16:26.090 --> 00:16:29.090
  • it really has not changed,
  • 00:16:29.090 --> 00:16:31.100
  • because the moment you go out
  • 00:16:31.100 --> 00:16:32.170
  • and come back in again, it will
  • 00:16:32.170 --> 00:16:34.180
  • come back up, back to default.
  • 00:16:37.090 --> 00:16:40.090
  • This is how most people live
  • 00:16:40.090 --> 00:16:42.120
  • their lives, because their
  • 00:16:42.120 --> 00:16:45.110
  • default hadn't changed, their
  • 00:16:47.120 --> 00:16:50.120
  • situation hasn't changed, so
  • 00:16:51.040 --> 00:16:54.040
  • when they're in church, change,
  • 00:16:54.130 --> 00:16:57.130
  • when they're in church, they can
  • 00:16:57.130 --> 00:16:58.140
  • get this goin'.
  • 00:16:58.140 --> 00:17:00.130
  • When they're around certain
  • 00:17:00.130 --> 00:17:01.220
  • people, they can get this goin'.
  • 00:17:01.220 --> 00:17:03.130
  • When you sing certain songs,
  • 00:17:03.130 --> 00:17:04.290
  • they can get that goin'.
  • 00:17:04.290 --> 00:17:06.240
  • When you shout and leap, you can
  • 00:17:06.240 --> 00:17:08.230
  • get that goin', but when you go
  • 00:17:08.230 --> 00:17:10.030
  • back home, you go back to
  • 00:17:10.030 --> 00:17:11.270
  • default.
  • 00:17:11.270 --> 00:17:13.180
  • So you're goin' back to default
  • 00:17:13.180 --> 00:17:15.020
  • over and over again, and when
  • 00:17:15.020 --> 00:17:16.240
  • you get around certain people,
  • 00:17:16.240 --> 00:17:18.190
  • you change, and you wanna hang
  • 00:17:18.190 --> 00:17:21.050
  • around them because, as long as
  • 00:17:21.050 --> 00:17:22.220
  • you're around them, you feel
  • 00:17:22.220 --> 00:17:24.160
  • peace, or you feel nice, or you
  • 00:17:24.160 --> 00:17:26.010
  • feel kind, or you feel
  • 00:17:26.010 --> 00:17:27.290
  • spiritual, or you feel holy.
  • 00:17:27.290 --> 00:17:29.210
  • That's not the problem.
  • 00:17:29.210 --> 00:17:31.090
  • The problem is, when you go back
  • 00:17:31.090 --> 00:17:32.280
  • to yourself, you are stuck in
  • 00:17:32.280 --> 00:17:35.120
  • the same pattern that you were
  • 00:17:35.120 --> 00:17:37.020
  • before, and you can't figure out
  • 00:17:37.020 --> 00:17:39.080
  • how to break it.
  • 00:17:39.080 --> 00:17:40.260
  • You've cried about it, but just
  • 00:17:40.260 --> 00:17:42.190
  • keep goin' back.
  • 00:17:42.190 --> 00:17:43.270
  • You've shouted about it, but
  • 00:17:43.270 --> 00:17:45.160
  • just keep goin' back.
  • 00:17:45.160 --> 00:17:47.020
  • You've even prayed about it, but
  • 00:17:47.020 --> 00:17:48.230
  • you keep goin' back, and you
  • 00:17:48.230 --> 00:17:50.210
  • can't figure out how somebody
  • 00:17:50.210 --> 00:17:52.020
  • who cried for it and shouted for
  • 00:17:52.020 --> 00:17:54.090
  • it and sang about it and started
  • 00:17:54.090 --> 00:17:56.140
  • goin' to church on Sunday--and
  • 00:17:56.140 --> 00:17:58.200
  • "Why does this still keep
  • 00:17:58.200 --> 00:18:00.140
  • happenin' to me?"
  • 00:18:00.140 --> 00:18:02.070
  • I don't know whose prayer I'm
  • 00:18:02.070 --> 00:18:04.040
  • breaking into, but I'm breakin'
  • 00:18:04.040 --> 00:18:05.220
  • into somebody's prayer, sayin',
  • 00:18:05.220 --> 00:18:07.190
  • "Lord, why do I keep goin'
  • 00:18:07.190 --> 00:18:09.170
  • through the same things over and
  • 00:18:09.170 --> 00:18:10.290
  • over again?
  • 00:18:10.290 --> 00:18:12.180
  • I go to church now, I tithe now,
  • 00:18:12.180 --> 00:18:15.090
  • I shout now, and I leap now" and
  • 00:18:15.090 --> 00:18:17.180
  • the Lord sent me here to tell
  • 00:18:17.180 --> 00:18:19.230
  • ya, "It's no problem with your
  • 00:18:19.230 --> 00:18:21.260
  • sentence*.
  • 00:18:21.260 --> 00:18:23.010
  • The problem is with your
  • 00:18:23.010 --> 00:18:24.020
  • default.
  • 00:18:24.020 --> 00:18:25.150
  • Until you change your default,
  • 00:18:25.150 --> 00:18:27.290
  • you will always go back to being
  • 00:18:27.290 --> 00:18:29.240
  • who you were before you have
  • 00:18:29.240 --> 00:18:32.220
  • never changed your mind.
  • 00:18:36.220 --> 00:18:39.220
  • You changed your friends, you
  • 00:18:39.220 --> 00:18:41.090
  • changed your address, you
  • 00:18:41.090 --> 00:18:42.190
  • changed your phone number, you
  • 00:18:42.190 --> 00:18:44.060
  • changed the songs you sing, you
  • 00:18:44.060 --> 00:18:46.090
  • changed everything else, but you
  • 00:18:46.090 --> 00:18:48.090
  • didn't change your mind.
  • 00:18:48.190 --> 00:18:51.190
  • There is nothing as powerful as
  • 00:18:53.130 --> 00:18:56.130
  • A changed mind, oh, a changed
  • 00:19:00.190 --> 00:19:03.190

  • 00:19:03.190 --> 00:19:05.170
  • Whether you do it in twelve
  • 00:19:05.170 --> 00:19:06.180
  • steps or one step, a change
  • 00:19:06.180 --> 00:19:07.270
  • mind.
  • 00:19:07.270 --> 00:19:09.190
  • Oh, God, y'all don't hear what
  • 00:19:09.190 --> 00:19:10.190
  • I'm sayin'.
  • 00:19:10.190 --> 00:19:11.220
  • A changed mind.
  • 00:19:11.220 --> 00:19:12.270
  • There are some people in here
  • 00:19:12.270 --> 00:19:14.040
  • right now that used to do drugs,

  • all kinds of drugs, crazy drugs,
  • 00:19:16.090 --> 00:19:18.100
  • strung out on drugs.
  • 00:19:18.100 --> 00:19:20.160
  • People wouldn't believe who you
  • 00:19:20.160 --> 00:19:21.220
  • used to be.
  • 00:19:21.220 --> 00:19:23.090
  • Your old friends never thought
  • 00:19:23.090 --> 00:19:24.220
  • you would ever get away, but one
  • 00:19:24.220 --> 00:19:27.100
  • day, you got sick and tired of

  • bein' sick and tired, and you
  • 00:19:29.010 --> 00:19:31.010
  • said, "Wait a minute, I'm not

  • I completely change."
  • 00:19:40.170 --> 00:19:43.030
  • Yeah, there's some women in this

  • about how much you weigh?
