The Full Capacity Man Is a respected man. What does this look like? This episode touches on Jim's newest book that is coming soon, The Full Capacity Man.

The Greatest Gift a Man can Give 

An overseer, then, must be…respectable.

1 Timothy 3:2

“I firmly believe that respect is a lot more important, and a lot greater, than popularity.”                                                                                                       — Julius “Dr. J” Erving NBA Star

“This is the same word, kosmios, that is translated ‘modesty’—literally, ‘with modesty’ in 1 Timothy 2:9. The basic meaning of the word is ‘orderly’. But Greek writers used it as a source of ‘respectable’ or ‘honorable.’”                                    —Ralph Earle

Expositor’s Bible Commentary  

Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments.

—1 Timothy 2:9

“I'm not concerned with your liking or disliking me... All I ask is that you respect me as a human being.”

—Jackie Robinson
