How should Christians handle a cause..?..?..?

It always saddens me when I observe Christians disagreeing on what “our” biggest “cause” should be. While we all have different callings we can never afford to get so caught up in that one calling that we forget our true calling, our one and only calling and that is to bring others to Christ.  I…

Business and Mercy…do they mix?

My business is a very customer service oriented entity.  We sell a commodity and the only way to separate ourselves from the competition is by focusing our product around the wants and needs of our customers.  The key to great customer service has and will always be building solid relationships and these relationships are built…

Vegas…

I am not a world traveler by any stretch of the imagination but I’ve been in several cities throughout the United States. I really like Boston and I am always awestruck by the mammoth size and “busy-ness” of New York City as well as it’s cultural diversity. Washington D.C. has so much history I could…

Every day I get up and do my morning devotion.  It is a time for me to pray, read the bible and listen and reflect on what the Lord has in store for me.  It is my way of getting in touch right out of the gate.  I put the armor of God on first…

Acceptance is the key…

When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing or situation—some fact of my life unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed…

Envy will rot your bones

This morning during my morning devotion I read Proverbs 14.  In verse 30 it states “A peaceful heart leads to a healthy body; jealousy is like cancer in the bones.” This is the new living translation version of the bible.  In the New International version it states that “envy will rot your bones.” I don’t…

A Gift We All Have

Recently I was talking with my wife and she was marveling at how many people know our multiply handicapped 22 year old son.  Our son cannot talk, he still wears a diaper and is pretty much total care.  He has gone to school and some type of special program for most of his life.  Along the…
