Amos 9: A Closer Look

As we continue seeking God to the best of our ability, I believe these blessings will be a natural byproduct. I am believing these things for not only me, but for all of you both personally and professionally.

I’ll Take a Cookie, With Extra Selfishness on the Side

I’m not condoning selfishness, as it flies in the face of everything Jesus taught. Instead, I’m advocating for grace to be shown and self-assessments to be had. I want to encourage you to start by looking more meaningfully at your own behavior. From there, I wonder if that paradigm shift will lead each of us to see other people’s actions in a slightly different light.

The Secret Life of a Seat Saver

Being a seat-saver is an interesting task, you have to know that you don’t belong there, yet be in tune enough with the Lord to know not to move until the right time. He entrusts those positions to people who will be consistent and stay but will know the right time and right way to leave.

2 Wrongs Don’t Make A Right… Or do they?

The only thing that will cancel out the hurt and expunge the record of wrongs is forgiveness. Forgiveness isn’t letting a person off the hook or inviting them to hurt you again, it’s a way of saying “I don’t like what you did, but I’m willing to not hold it against you for my sake and yours”. Let’s do our part to stop the cycle of hurt and abuse. Let’s try a better way; let’s love and forgive instead.
