The Strategy of God: Business People

One of the greatest joys I get to experience in my life is watching the “epiphanies” that people experience when they realize that the very thing that makes them seem unusual, weird — or even crazy — to the people around them… is actually God’s design.

Do the Hard Things!

The easy button…it’s been a marketing bullseye ever since that giant red button first arrived in 2005.

Let’s face it, human nature likes easy. Heck, the entire universe craves easy. Newton’s First Law of Motion says: Things want to keep doing what they are usually doing. (my paraphrase) And for most of us, that’s taking […]

Winning Isn’t for You

At some point in the pursuit of our God-given dreams, we all have a moment. For some of us, it’s at the very beginning of the journey. For others… it happens somewhere along the way. But we all have to come to grips with a very simple reality:

The Thrill of Humbling Yourself

Over the last couple of months, I’ve had occasion to spend a fair amount of time meditating on 1 Peter chapter 5. It’s one of a couple of places in Scripture that God conveys to us this idea:
Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one […]
