Stop Being Judgmental — A Word on Heart Opening (People. Matter. 01.17.17)

PM011717

Dietrich Bonhoeffer is one of my all-time favorite theologians. If you’re not all into religion, though, he’s still one of the best writers on theological subjects and life in general. It turns out that he had something profound to say about being judgmental too… Read more…

I’m Not a Fan of Favors…So This Is a Gift (365 Days of Spirited Living — DAY 350)

“Presents are made for the pleasure of who gives them, not the merits of who receives them.”
— Carlos Ruiz Zafón

We have this thing in modern society where we have such a love affair with cutting deals with each other and giving only in order to get. You know how it goes, right? You attend my event, I attend yours. You write a kind word about me on Instagram and I do the same for you. I listen to you speak for ten minutes so then you will owe me ten minutes of listening when I speak too. Read more…

Clothed in Something Beautiful (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 320)

clothed-in-something-beautiful

Colossians 3:12 (NLT)
Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.

There are many opportunities throughout our lives in which we can develop patience and allow mercy, kindness, humility, and gentleness to be reflected in our attitudes and actions. One of those opportunities is no more evident than during the holiday season. For many people, it all seems like a blur with the shopping and traveling, gift-giving and cooking. Read more…

The Grace Solution (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 274)

the-grace-solution

Proverbs 29:11 (NLT)
Fools vent their anger, but the wise quietly hold it back.

There are a host of things you can’t control in this life. You can’t control the color of your school, where you were born, or who your parents are. You can’t control what happens to you on a daily basis, what people say or think, or the situations you encounter. You also can’t control the way you look, how tall or short you are, or your past. Many people waste time trying to control the things and the people that are simply beyond their power. Read more…

Reflecting Grace by How We Treat People (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 251)

Reflecting Grace by How We Treat People

Luke 6:31 (NLT)
Do to others as you would like them to do to you.

We may not think about it like this, but each and everyone of us have people in our lives who serve us on a daily basis. A trip to your favorite restaurant will show you a waiter or waitress who is a servant in disguise. The secretary at your office, the receptionist at the dentist, the barista at Starbucks, your husband, wife, parents, children, your child’s teacher and coach all are people who serve you. One of the best proofs of maturity and tests of character is how you treat the people who serve you. Read more…

Grateful For Your Generosity (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 241)

Grateful For Your Generosity

Philippians 4:18 (NLT)
At the moment I have all I need—and more! I am generously supplied with the gifts you sent me with Epaphroditus. They are a sweet-smelling sacrifice that is acceptable and pleasing to God.

We earn a living by the money we make through our work. However, working for money is a poor way to earn respect from others and establish a legacy that others will appreciate. We earn the gratitude of others by what we give of our time, our money, and ourselves. The people who accomplish the most and whose contributions are the most long-lasting are those who give generously.

Life Is About Love (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 216)

Life Is About Love

Mark 6:34a (NLT)
When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them…

One of the main tests of spiritual maturity is how much love and compassion you extend to other people. It really isn’t about how many Bible verses you can quote or how many years you’ve served a church or how much you tithe or how much charity work you do or how many times a day you pray. The thing that really reveals your heart is how you treat other people. Read more…
