Rights vs. Responsibilities

Have you ever noticed how political groups and social organizations are always talking about the “rights” of their members? They want the full entitlement to the benefit that they feel they are due. However rights are all about “me, me, me.”  Forget about your “rights” and focus on your God-given responsibilities.Click To TweetPowered By CoSchedule […]

He will turn the hearts of the parents to their children, and the hearts of the children to their parents; or else I will come and strike the land with total destruction.” prodigal-son

The Art of Emotional Discipline

There is a myth that has been very, very destructive to the lives of millions of women (and men). Broken, burnt out, depleted and exhausted. It’s a lie that too many people have bought into – and the media continues to pump it out which is so destructive – so wrong – and completely false. It’s […]

I have never met a happy, tight-fisted person. A servant spirit makes a person very, very valuable. A generous spirit is a Christ-like spirit. He gave himself totally and completely to us. The Bible says “Give and it shall be given to you” not ‘hold – hold it, hoard it,  and hide it…’  (*wink*)

“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”  Luke 6:38

You’ll find that people who are generous are often patient, kind, tenderhearted and have a deep reverence for the Lord. You don’t have to have much to give. You just have to have a sincere heart that deeply loves the Lord.BW_Helping_Hands

As divine punishment he fell in love with his own reflection in a pool, not realizing it was merely […]

Leaders Are Lovers

In the Bible, ministry and service are words that characterize leadership. Jesus set the standard when He said, “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45). Many Christian leaders follow the pattern of business or political models, which emphasize the organizational component […]

The Importance of Education

The importance of learning and education cannot be overemphasized. However many people often confuse schooling with education. There are some similarities but also some differences. Going to school typically ends after twelve to sixteen years. Many begin at kindergarden and then end when they get their diploma, however learning can (and should) be a lifelong process. You […]

The Most Mature Mindset

The most mature character attribute that a parent can teach their child is altruism. Altruism is giving out of concern for another without any regard to oneself. Altruism is the essence of God’s love.Click To TweetPowered By CoSchedule If you think about it, an “altruistic child” is an oxymoron because the process of growing up […]
