Happiness. Zappos believes in delivering it. Coke wants you to open it. Countless books try to help you achieve it. Research demonstrates that you are more productive with it. And yet the truth is that so few people feel it, especially at work. Why? Is it because leaders don’t create “happy” workplaces? Is it […]

    I’ve been speaking to a lot of organizations around the country and one thing I keep hearing from leaders and employees is that complaining is at an all time high. I’m not surprised. There are usually two main reasons why we complain. 1. We complain because we feel powerless. 2. We complain because […]

  This week’s topic: Freedom In Christ What is freedom in Christ? I’ve really been crying out for this lately. You see, this annoying whisper–and quite nasty I might add–has been constantly slipping judgmental and accusing thoughts into my ear that just won’t seem to quit. Who wouldn’t want freedom from that nasty voice, huh?  […]

via GospelGoodies.com: Mark your calendars! The new year is set to boost a few new Christian movies coming to theaters! Which are you looking forward to seeing most?  It’s based on The Impossible: The Miraculous Story of a Mother’s Faith and her Child’s Resurrection, a non-fiction book about exactly what the title states. This Is Us […]

  One of the greatest and most underestimated provisions God has made available to us to make our lives fruitful and fulfilling is His love! Nothing we achieve or possess is worth anything unless we possess the love of God. The apostle Paul testified, “If I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and […]

Isn’t it mind-boggling to know that part of Jesus’ cruel punishment was to lug that heavy, splintery cross with him through the streets and up the hill to his crucifixion?  It’s bad enough to die on a cross, much less carry it with us and THEN be spiked to it. It seems that as often […]

  Have you ever been in a situation where someone had a need and you did not have enough money to help that person? I have. Or have you heard about a ministry that didn’t have enough to feed people, buy clothing or shoes for others in need, and not have anything extra to give […]

  At this time in history, Jewish people did not and would not have been ministering to Gentiles (non Jewish people.) God had to come and talk to Peter about even going to Cornelius’ house for he was a Gentile. (SEE Acts 10:9-23 and 27-29) Peter was preaching about Jesus to this first group of […]

I often wonder about the Samaritan woman who had the privilege of meeting Jesus at the well. What was she like before that day? I imagine she was beautiful; so beautiful that she stood out amongst her peers. Yet beneath the surface of her ravishing beauty, was a woman scorned and abhorred by those around […]

  One of the most moving of all biblical occurrences is Jesus’ interaction with the woman who had been caught in the act of adultery (John 8:1-11). The story appears only in the Gospel of John. A number of persons asked me why the study notes in their Bibles made reference to the fact that […]

  This week’s topic: In Need Of A Savior When Jesus Christ was born, God in human flesh dwelt among mankind. The long-awaited Messiah had come into the world. Immanuel was here. The news was given first to the shepherds, who hurried to see this God-man for themselves. From there, they spread the word that […]
