While on the road one night I was channel surfing to see if I could find something positive to watch. My hand stopped the remote on a preacher admonishing his congregation for their lack of faith. He said, “if you want a new car, pray in faith! If you want a bigger house, pray in […]

One area in my life that requires much work and discipline is the art of listening. In my opinion, listening is the most important part of good communication. Andy Stanley once said, “Leaders who don’t listen will eventually be surrounded by people who have nothing to say.” “He who answers before listening—that is his folly […]

Recently, I heard a high school athletic director challenge a group of football players to “do something nice for two people everyday. And, if the people you help find out it was you, it doesn’t count.” This reminded me of what Jesus said: “But when you give to the needy, do not let your left […]

Bible Study is a very important part of growing as a follower of Christ. But even the greatest theologian isn’t using a fraction of what he already knows about the Bible. If all of us as believers used what we already know, we could change the world. “Do not merely listen to the word, and […]

So much more can be accomplished in our life if we would just be willing to ask for help. We have a Helper to call on, the Holy Spirit. He wants to help us today. He wants us to ask. “Your worst day with God will be better than your best day without Him.” (Joyce […]
