||CleanMJC2.13 Hold the Line||We should always be trying to improve everyday to be better today than we were yesterday, but there are going to be times that we aren’t able to move forward. In those circumstances, it’s important that we hold the line and don’t move backwards. Speaking of making progress, join the Progress Not Perfection group on Facebook.||6/8/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanMJC2.12 I’ve Tried Everything||People often come to me for advice about things like parenting or personal growth and say they’ve tried everything, but then they won’t accept another approach from what they’re already doing. This is kind of a rant about this and a better way to go about improving. Get in on the action at www.matthewjcochran.com/patreon||6/1/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanMJC2.11 Don’t be discontent because others are||I listen to a ton of resources online and they’re all saying the same thing…except when they’re not. It’s our job to discern what’s right for us because our lives all have unique circumstances and nuance. Listen to the voices of others, but do it cautiously. It’s ok to be content.

||CleanMJC2.04 Improvement, Not Perfection||“It’s fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure.” -Bill Gates We often tend to treat success as a place that we arrive, but we will never get there. We need to focus more on the process of improving ourselves, not on reaching perfection. Goals are good, but they’re not the end. Sometimes when we think we can’t reach perfection we actually never begin. Do SOMETHING. Try Audible for FREE.||1/25/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

||CleanMJC2.02 Don’t live for the approval of others||So often we make decisions in life based on what other people are going to think of us.

||CleanSermon: Stop Global Whining||Matt Cochran – Sun, Jul 06, 2014 at Christ Fellowship of Tampa Philippians 2:1-16 (ESV) 1So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, 2complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. 3Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. 4Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. 5Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the nam||7/6/2014||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanSermon: Love Remix||Matt Cochran – Sun, Jun 22, 2014 at Christ Fellowship of Tampa 1 Corinthians 4:4-13 4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; 6it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. 9For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. 11When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 12For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known. 13So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the||6/22/2014||Free||View in iTunes|

I Love listening to these podcasts because they touch on life in an interesting approach. It's neat to hear positive stories about family and researched opinions about politics! I encourage anyone to subscribe.
I love how this podcast varies in topics like politics, family and God. Each podcast is informational and uplifting, and he is very knowledgable on the topics he discusses. I also like hearing how invested he is in his kids. I highly recommend subscribing!
I really enjoy listening to Matt pour out his heart on issues and topics that we are sometimes left pondering. Whether it's an issue that we might be afraid to speak out about or something as simple as the Good News - Matt is consistently transparent and applies the bottom line message of God's love and the call to apply biblical principles in everyday life.
