God or Money? You Choose.

This says it all:

No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. Matthew 6:24

The choice is all yours. This doesn’t mean you have to be poor if you pick God. It simply means that in life you choose who to follow: God or wealth. Your choice? Continue reading

Model Leader: Jesus Christ

A leader puts the cause, group, or organization above him/herself. A leader sacrifices their own needs, wants, interests to further those of others. There is no “I” in “leader” for the same reason there is no “I” in “team.” A true leader is totally selfless, not selfish. And there is no better role model of what a leader is than Jesus Christ.

Take a Lesson from the Israelites: Stop Wandering Your Desert!

Some think the story of the Israelites wandering the desert for 40 years is old news. Well, I have news for you: it’s very much new news. Look at us—and I mean all of us on this planet. We’re wandering our world aimlessly. We fight and kill each other, watch as so many starve and die, and seemingly can’t agree on a thing. I mean, just what is this life about and where are we going? That’s where each one of us comes into the picture. Continue reading

God loves you the way He made you. You need to love you the way He made you. Continue reading

Living Your Purpose is the Real Joy in Life

Each one of us has a special, unique purpose in life. Understanding that is key to life. Living that purpose is the real joy in life. We are lost souls until we understand God’s purpose for us. Living that purpose brings real joy, fulfillment, and peace in life. Life is that simple; the way God means it to be for each one of us. Continue reading

Take a Lesson: With God All Time is Like the Present!

“No time like the present” tells us to get things done now and don’t put them off till tomorrow. Because tomorrow we may regret not getting things done yesterday, when it was the present. We get so trapped in time, worrying about what can/will happen tomorrow and what we should have done in the past, that we have so little time for the present. Not living for today, and stopping to enjoy the moment, is why so many people are unhappy, unfulfilled, and not at peace with themselves. Take a lesson from God: He only lives in the present.
