Welcome to Episode #60 of the Red Ink Revival Leadership Podcast. Today’s conversation is with Michael Howell of Legendary Sound Studios in Fort Worth, Texas. Michael is a recording artist, artist’s agent, church worship and production consultant, and all-around creative entrepreneur.

Our conversation takes us into the following topics:

  • The real issues in morality.

  • Making sense of moral guardrails.

  • How sin or “missing the mark” should be framed up.

  • Proverbs and the “street of the prostitute.”

  • How grace and moral standards coexist.

  • How legalism is about behavior, but holiness is about health.

  • How our systems and patterns are designed to produce a specific moral outcome.

  • How the devil seduces us into blurred lines and generalizations.

  • Identifying where compromises to standards are catalyzed.

  • How wisdom is crying in the streets for us to hold healthy standards.

  • How healthy moral standards inspire others and make us stand out.
