When we truly get the cross, you can never stay cross. When you truly grasp the gift that God gave each one of us on the cross, you will always be quicker to give forgiveness than hold onto bitterness. You’ll be quicker to extend grace than nurse a grudge. “Forgive one another as quickly and thoroughly as God in Christ forgave you” (Ephesians 4:32).… Read the rest

One of my heroes is Walt Disney. I love his leadership lessons and challenges. One of his great lessons of life is to “Live the ADVENTURE.” Too often we speak of how much we love life, but we fail to live it. God’s purpose is that we would be light to the world. And we have the privilege every day to live His light before people. Make it count. I’ve heard it said, “Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why they call it the present.”… Read the rest

The world will be won when the church is one. The lack of unity is one of the great injustices that continues to be overlooked. The last recorded prayer we have from Jesus was about the necessity of unity. “I pray that they will all be one, just as You and I are one – as You are in Me, Father, and I am in You. And may they be in Us so that the world will believe You sent Me. I have given them the glory You gave Me, so they may be one as We are one. I am in them and You are in Me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that You sent Me and that You love them as much as You love Me” (John 17:21-23).… Read the rest

When output exceeds income, your upkeep will be your downfall. It’s easy to get caught up in doing and wonder why you end up feeling like you’re failing. You must take time to ensure that you are being filled up. Busyness is a sad excuse for allowing your personal self to become empty, for in the end, everybody loses.… Read the rest

Titles mean very little if we truly understand what life is all about. In the end, people are never remembered for the positions they held, but for what they gave away. Life is about people, so love them, care for them, pour into them, and you will experience the greatest joy that few ever experience.… Read the rest

Do what frees another up, not what necessarily fires you up. I’m not suggesting that we neglect ourselves for the sake of another, but I am saying don’t just live for self and always do what you want. Paul writes, “Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too” (Philippians 2:4). When you build another up, he/she will never let you down.… Read the rest

We are wired to worship something; the question is what? I’ve heard it said that we give the greatest amount of time to what we value the most. I can’t say I completely agree with this. But what is true is that our hearts, our passions, reveal a great deal about us. “For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of” (Luke 6:45). What has you?… Read the rest

Though he was never ordained to the Catholic priesthood, Francis of Assisi is one of the most venerated religious figures in history. One of most memorable statements was, “Preach the Gospel at all times, and if necessary use words.” Nothing speaks louder than our own everyday lives. People get what they see.… Read the rest

I’ve heard it said that every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future. So it really comes down to this: either the wallpaper goes or I do. Now, think about that. Success is always about the future you choose to possess. The past is all about the paralysis of pain. So get about the living and what lies ahead rather than focusing on what has already been and cannot be changed.… Read the rest
