The gift of Jesus Christ to humankind is the greatest gift ever given. But it is not the only gift. When Jesus came into the world, He made it possible for us to obtain many other gifts — gifts such as peace, joy, and wonder which we often take for granted, but which we cannot get on our own. This book is about 12 of those other gifts that Jesus gives.

Give Other People a Break (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 337)

give-other-people-a-break

James 3:17 (NLT)
But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and the fruit of good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere.

We live in a far from perfect world among far from perfect people with a far from perfect self. What most of us need to learn to give and to receive more than judgment, hatred and criticism is love, kindness, and mercy. It isn’t because we deserve it or because we feel other people deserve it but because that is what we need, and it is wise to give people what they need to get through life. Read more…

Pass the Forgiveness (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 321)

pass-the-forgiveness

Colossians 3:13 (NLT)
Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.

Isn’t it interesting how we are quick to ascribe positive intent to our own actions, motives, and thoughts but equally as quick to ascribe negative intent to the actions, motives, and thoughts of someone else. We have a tendency to make room for our own faults and failures but very little room to make the same allowance for other people who potentially do some of the same things. Read more…

Unforgiveness Only Hurts You (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 283)

unforgiveness-only-hurts-you

Matthew 6:14-15 (NLT)
If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you. But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins.

Forgiveness is a choice. It is also a product of reaping and sowing. If you don’t learn to forgive other people who offend you even as Christ has forgiven you, you can’t expect the forgiveness of other people. Forgiveness can be likened to a currency exchange. You give some of what you have to get some of what they have. It’s a two-way street. When we give it, we’ll receive it when we need it. Read more…

6 More Ways We Fail at Progress (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 270)

frederick-wilcox

“Progress always involves risks. You can’t steal second base and keep your foot on first.”
— Frederick Wilcox

Always be willing to continue the climb. Always be willing to row to the other side despite the storm. Always be ready to take risks and anticipate the outcome. It is possible for you to do whatever you choose in life. However, if you get to know who you are and what you are capable of accomplishing, you will be more likely to set goals, overcome insecurities, and trust a power that is greater than you to help you get to where you want to go.

Broken Crowns (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 175)

Broken Crowns

Luke 15:10 (NLT)
In the same way, there is joy in the presence of God’s angels when even one sinner repents.

The value God places on each human life cannot be compared to anything else. Many times people want to know how much they matter to other people. But what really matters is how valued we are by God. In Scripture, a lost sheep, lost money, and a lost son were diligently searched for until they were found. This is how much God cares for us. Read more…

3 Complete Signs You’re Moving Forward (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 126)

3 Complete Signs You’re Moving Forward

“If you don’t live a life in service of a greater good, you’ve gotta at least die a death in service of a greater good, you know?”
— John Green

Like air, water, and food, growth is a fundamental human need. We consider something to be developmentally wrong when a young child is not progressing physically at certain stages. Likewise, there can be a stunting of growth when no real progress is being made over a significant period of time. Progress is growth. Growth is progress. The two go together. One cannot exist without the other. If you are moving forward, it means you are seeing real results and are taking action steps toward your goals.  Read more…

You Get What You Give (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 119)

You Get What You Give

Luke 6:37 (NLT)
Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn others, or it will all come back against you. Forgive others, and you will be forgiven.

For the believer, life is so paradoxically. To go up, we must come down. To get saved, we must first be lost. To really live, we must die. To be first, we must be willing to be last. To reap, we must sow. To earn money, we must work. To succeed, we must first fail. To receive, we must give. To receive mercy, we must be merciful. To be forgiven, we must forgive. Read more…
