Failing to use what we have been given for any common good may come from fear but, the way we use our resources says a lot about who we really are. Self-assessment IS invited, encouraged and necessary.
The study of theology can be difficult and no one person or group can have all of God’s truth. The basics, however are so simple even a child can understand.
Turbulent times are often times of fear. Fear of lack of control, fear of loss, fear of the unknown. Holding everything, including our lives, with open hands is the only way to vanquish those fears through our faith in our Creator.
Money is part of my life expended for the payment of it’s worth. When handled rightly, money provides the means by which my life is also extended into the lives of others who may be in need.
Armed with passion and desire to achieve a goal can and will make a difference in the lives of others. Those around you have opportunity to be inspired and those far-off may simply have opportunity that otherwise would not have come. Look around and see what needs to be done; and then do it.
Get rich quick schemes most often don’t give what they promise. Working for the things you want is far better for all concerned.
Competition can push us forward positively aiding in the completion of achievements. Pride on the other hand, will often overrule the humility needed to achieve our goals in a positive manner.
The founders of our nation labored diligently and carefully to create our nation. They used a foundation of three pillars, holding equal weight. They are Home, school and church.
E. Stanley Jones died unnoticed on the same day as former U.S. Presidents Truman and Johnson. Very few knew of his death while the former president’s deaths were observed by every major news source.
I am a little bit square because I believe that God in the person of Jesus Christ is my personal savior; personal responsibility; raising my children under the influence of the church; the golden rule and 2nd chances. Yep! …I’m a little bit square and that’s alright with me.
Life’s disappointments can be defeating but that need not be the case. If one keeps on pushing ahead with eyes firmly fixed on Christ, one learns from it, gains wisdom in learning and continues on the path of dependence on the Lord.
Only when we finally come to see ourselves as we truly are can we become ready to commune with the Savior.
Doing what is right and just may cost you something. Being right; treating others as you want to be treated is more important than the profit you might have if you operate out of deceit.
Standards; the marks of achievement for which we strive must be maintained in the most elevated estimation for societies as well as individuals. Lowering the standard looks appealing for it makes achievement easier but the accomplishment matters little within the battle.
Including God in one’s plans is a pretty good idea when viewed from the mark of sinful beginning but God’s place is not beside us as co-owner. His place is far above ours as our head, master and Lord.
The world judges based on the standards of a broken, fallen identity. Believers are commanded to a higher standard, one that values each life as precious to our heavenly Father because we bear His image.
It’s all too easy to miss the great opportunities that come our way, How may have you already missed? How many more will be had when sought after?
It takes a discerning eye to see beauty in the insignificant things of life. Stone or tax-collector; beauty can be found when looking through the eyes of Christ.
As many others have found, in his attempt to discredit the Bible, Lou Wallace discovered God and His plan for life.
The way in which we define things like “freedom” is telling, for freedom isn’t doing whatever it is we want. Freedom is an environment which enables and encourages choice to be captivated by service. The apostle Paul spoke of being a bond-servant to Christ and in that bondage he found true freedom.
