We were chatting last week about the concept of making resolutions and recognizing that the research demonstrates that less than 10 % of New Years Resolutions are actually “kept”! INTENTIONAL men understand the value of being resolved to become more like Christ, but we too consistently fall short of our intentions. A different way to look at […]

Two New Year’s resolutions I’ve seen that I love:  “I must work on my self-esteem, but I don’t think I can do it.” “I must be more assertive if that’s okay with you guys? Even though most folks in many cultures around the world make resolutions at the beginning of a New Year, we are […]

Happy New Year! The Life and Legacy of King Josiah is worthy of our attention as we enter into another new year. The Bible describes this unlikely king with the highest praise: “Before him there was no king like him, who turned to the Lord with all his heart and with all his soul and […]

In the beginning, after God created the heavens and the earth, the earth was said to be formless and desolate. The water that covered was engulfed in total darkness, but the Spirit of God was moving.

The King Has Come! Matthew 2:1 – 6 Author and essayist Flannery O’Conner said: “The truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it.” Truth is truth whether we like it or not. The fact that I personally object to the truth doesn’t matter. Those things that are objectively true remain true even […]

As we enter the traditional season of giving thanks, according to Colossians 2:7, we should always be “overflowing with gratitude.” Oftentimes we only think about the external blessings God has given us, such as good health, family and physical provision, but let’s not overlook the spiritual blessings that come to us through our relationship with […]

Can you believe that we are nearing another Thanksgiving season! Honestly…it is my favorite holiday. I grew up in the mid-west and vividly recall the sights, sounds, and smells of this particular season.
