Selfless Desires (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 362)

selfless-desires

Galatians 6:8 (NLT)
Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit.

A common question among social psychologists is whether people are naturally inclined to be more altruistic or to be more selfish. While some evidence points to humans being innately generous and willing to help, other studies state that we have the natural tendency to be greedy and self-focused. Some of this is influenced by our environment while some of it is impacted by genetics. Read more…

Peace Efforts (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 193)

Peace Efforts

Matthew 5:9 (NLT)
God blesses those who work for peace, for they will be called the children of God.

As Jesus spoke these words, much of Galilee was in an ongoing negative conflict with each other. Nobody trusted, liked, loved, or were friends with anyone else. The region of Galilee looks like much of the world today. Constantly at war, many of us do not know what peace looks like or how to make any effort towards it.  Read more…

Conflict to Forgiveness (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 118)

Conflict to Forgiveness

Matthew 18:21-22 (NLT)
Then Peter came to him [Jesus] and asked, “Lord, how often should I forgive someone who sins against me? Seven times?” “No, not seven times,” Jesus replied, “but seventy times seven!”

Conflict is inevitable in life. We find ourselves involved in disagreements in family, business, school, and social relationships. Sometimes, we find ourselves in the middle of squabbles and clashes without intending to be such as when lines are long and traffic is backed up. There are times when we aren’t on the same page with people who are important to us and who mean well.  Read more…

Stronger Together Than Apart (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 93)

Stronger Together Than Apart

Ephesians 4:3 (NLT)
Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace.

Is it any wonder that the best relationships take work? The idea of effort seems to have become a much hated word since the beginning of modernism. In our age, it is easier to avoid people because of the work, love, and sacrifice that is required to maintain relationships. Grace is often misunderstood and peace is misinterpreted.  Read more…

When Not To Be Nice (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 65)

When Not To Be Nice

“Sometimes being too nice is dangerous; you have to show your mean side once in a while to avoid getting hurt.”
— Ziad K. Abdelnour

The statement, ‘treat others the way you want to be treated’ is a good idea that has been taught to us since we were young. Being nice to others is something that makes life go better all the way around for yourself and for others. There is always an opportunity to show kindness to someone else. Kindness is a universal language that everyone understands. However, there are some times in life when it is not okay to be nice. Being nice at these times is not beneficial to yourself or to the other person. Here are some ways in which it is okay to be un-nice: Read more…

You’re Not a Good Leader If…

1. You don’t have a vision. If you don’t know where you’re going, then you are not equipped to lead. Vision is what gets people around you motivated and inspired. Low vision, fickle vision, linear vision, or no vision will take you straight to the exit of failure. You must be able to see clearly what your goals are and envision how you will get them accomplished.
