Switching Gears

Some of the ‘best practices’ from the business world can make marriages work better. Not all, but some. Here are three examples: 1. Commit and Communicate – Employees, venders, investors and customers want to follow a leader who exhibits that singular ‘all in’ commitment to his business or organization. They want to hear it ....

Our Triune God

If you’ve read one or more of these posts, you already know I’m no theologian. So I hope you’ll cut me some slack as I try and unpack what the Lord has pointed me to . . . the Trinity. Father, Son and Holy Spirit. All God – all the same – yet all different....

The Belief Meter

So, do you believe in Jesus? How much? Do you believe enough? Evangelicals are known for wanting people to cross ‘the line of faith’ from unbelief to belief. Rightly so, since Jesus was pretty clear, with statements like “whoever believes in me shall have eternal life” and “I am the way, the truth and the...

Birds of a Feather…

. . . you don’t need me to finish it for you. This saying’s been around since the 16th century. Birds and animals of all sorts ‘flock together’ with ‘their kind’. It’s part of our comfort and sometimes, our safety. There’s power in numbers . . . ‘good guys’ do better against the ‘bad guys’...

The 3 Big Distractions

Jesus was so smart. From a first century world with no TV or technology, He spoke into our lives and put His finger on exactly 3 things that take us away from His Presence and peace. From Mark 4, verse 19 . . . “but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and...

Wes Yoder’s, Bond of Brothers

You can check out the book by clicking here. Such a great title, who could resist this book? Here’s a ‘net out’ of my takeaways…. 1. “Nearly every man I know can recite word-for-word a beautiful compliment or a harsh criticism received from his father” 2. “Words create spiritual strongholds and by them, spiritual legacies...

Empathy for Jesus

Day in and day out, Christ-followers ask Jesus to have empathy for them. To ‘be with them’. We thank Jesus for His love and forgiveness. We rest knowing He “feels us”. . . that He understands . . . that He felt what we feel when He walked the earth as a human being. But...

Getting Off Track

How does it work that someone so close to God . . .  so “filled with the Spirit” . . . so fired up and full of love . . . ends up distraught, angry and alone – all in a matter of days? Puzzling isn’t it? Sarah Young, from April 6th Jesus Calling “When you...

Finding A Following

September is a great month to start a mentoring group. Vacations are done. People are getting back into the school routine. And you can be ready to mentor some ‘younger ones’ if you’ll start prepping now. Two things keep guys from mentoring. The first one is fear. “I’m afraid I’m not ready…I’m already so busy,...

Alligator Arms

My friend Rusty (an Auburn man) uses this metaphor all the time. When it feels like what you want to touch is just out of your reach. No matter how hard you think, how far you stretch or how strong your body, you can’t grab hold. Can’t do anything with it. Alligator arms. That’s how...
