Todd Chrisley says he 'fell short' of God's expectations and became a 'slave' to money

“Dios literalmente me ha llevado a un lugar donde tengo tanta paz sin preocuparme más por tratar de complacer o tratar de cumplir con las expectativas de otra persona.,” la “Chrisley sabe mejor” reality star said on the most recent episode of his podcastChrisley Confessionswith his wife Julie last Friday. “The expectation I long to meet is of God. God expects me to be a good, decent, honorable human being. He expects me to honor his word, he expects me to be the leader of my household, he expects me to set an example for my wife, my children, to lead by example.

He said he had always tried to do that, “but where I fell short in doing that is that I really didn’t give glory to God in all of the things we were accomplishing because I felt like I was the one doing the work. I was the one getting up every day, I was the one staying up late at night not thinking that God was the one giving me the energy to be able to do that.

He said he has now “rendido” all of that to God after hegot lostwhen he couldn’ttell the difference between my self-worth and my net worth. And the bigger my net worth became the less I focused on my self-worth. Because everything was being built around that net worth.
