This morning join me in being reminded of a few of the incredible qualities, and also, the grace of the God we serve: Psalm 103:8 “The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.” Psalm 103:12 “as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions […]

We’ve all most likely been in situations at a time when an opportunity to give presents itself. Do we open our heart, our hands and our wallets and receive the blessings that come through giving? Or, do we conveniently grow “alligator arms?” It’s hard to “cast the bread upon the waters” with alligator arms! LOL […]

God has blessed me with many opportunities to speak and share my faith. I’ve spoken to major leaguers, college football and baseball teams and many high school and youth teams. This afternoon I will speak to a middle school football team. I’ve been told that this is a particularly rebellious and disrespectful team. So, first […]

We all have a circle of influence, which in some respects gives us a measure of power. Some we know have much power. We should pray for them…for their strength of character. Abraham Lincoln once said, “Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.” “As […]

People tend to rank sins. Many times, our neighbors sins are greater than our own. The truth continues to be that we all sin. We all need forgiveness. We all need a Savior. (For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23) There are those who turn their back on […]

If I have a problem with everyone, I am probably the problem. “Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” (Psalm 139:23-24) Keith Madison SCORE International

Do we spend time or invest time? If we “invest” time in those we love, we will reap great dividends…so will those we love. When we are sharing space with those we love, we should be “all in.” Personally, I need growth here…what about you? “So teach us to number our days, that we may […]

Peter spent much time with Jesus, learning and observing the Great Teacher. In the 10th chapter of Acts, while describing Jesus’ ministry while on earth, Peter simply said, “He went about doing good.” As followers of Jesus, that would be a good thing for us to emulate today and every day. It’s hard to go […]

Confrontation is inevitable in our lives. It raises its stressful head both at work and at home. I will admit, I haven’t always been at my best during confrontation (especially with umpires-LOL), but if you see an issue looming, experience has taught me these principles: 1. Pray. Ask God for wisdom (James 1:5) and the […]
