Christianity in the Workplace
When you think about it, being a Christian in the workplace is one of the greatest privileges afforded a person. To actually be in regular contact with people outside the church who are far from God puts feet to what happens on Sunday.
When You've Lost Your Job
Perhaps you are reading this because you have lost your job or someone close to you has been laid off. If that's the case, the first thing you should be certain of is that no one needs to go through this trial alone. Others care about the pain you are experiencing and want to help you get on your feet again.
A Worthy Tip
Christians are generous when giving to needs in the church or supporting their favorite ministry, but when it comes to tipping, believers have earned a bad reputation among servers in restaurants across the country. "Jenna" is a married, Christian college student who works as a server at a popular restaurant...
Blooming Where God Puts You
It's that time of the year when people all across the country plant gardens. From these gardens, they gather fresh food later in the year. But that harvest doesn't just happen. After planting, the gardener waters, fertilizes, weeds, and inspects the plants every day. If he didn't, he wouldn't have a harvest, and all his work would be for nothing.
Follow the Money, Honey
The single greatest breakpoint in marriage is money. Not sex. Not the kids. Not her mother. Not work. It's MONEY!
Giving to Encourage Others
Christmas is coming, and every one of us has to think about gifts for family, friends, and loved ones. With all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it's all too easy to forget the real reason we celebrate. We think we have to find the absolute perfect gift for every person on the list.
How to take a risk for Jesus
God designed the world in a way where we have to live by faith. It's not optional. Every day is filled with uncertainty. You have no idea what's going to happen next week. You might have a plan, but you have no idea what's going to happen.
It's Not Phishing Season
Even though I avoid saying hate anyone, some people come awfully close to earning it. Most recently two people have come very close because they tried to steal my identity. Praise God both attempts failed.
As a father of four grown children, I often reflect on what my children will think of me years from now. What will they share with their own children about the heritage they grew up with? What will they want to pass on to the next generation? It is an awesome responsibility, a responsibility that is clearly taught in Proverbs 22:6, “Train a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not turn from it.”
Making Wise Choices In College
Off to college! For many men and women, this is the first time they are on their own in a real sense. Even though you may be in a dorm and in that sense not having to make all the decisions, you will be making choices that affect the rest of your life. The most obvious is which college to attend. At this point in the year, you have enrolled and are ready to start. So, we won't look much at choosing a college.
