The Joy of the Lord
✝️I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time seeing people walk around with frowns on their faces. They more resemble prunes rather than fresh, sweet, juicy oranges. Some say it is not realistic to be joyful all the time, but I say it is. 💪
✝️You may have heard the expression “God don’t like ugly” when someone does something unkind. It is often said to indicate that bad things will happen to the evildoer as a result of their act (in other words, “What goes around, comes around.”) It is true that God does not “like ugly” behaviors and...
All Things Work Together For Good
✝️Next to John 3:16, Romans 8:28 may be the most quoted verse in the Bible. Not only is this a convenient verse to turn to when things are not going our way or when we are facing challenges, but it is also very encouraging.💪
The Beloved Community
✝️How would you like to be part of a community where, in spite of external persecution, trials, and tests, everyone is in unity, maintaining complete integrity, trust, and transparency? A community where, out of the surplus of trade, the needs of the suffering and vulnerable are met, so that no one lacks any material necessity? This type of...
The Good Samaritan
✝️In Luke 10:25-37, Jesus portrays a Samaritan as a good person compared to the Jewish priest and Levite in the story. This is similar to stating that a non-Christian entrepreneur is more honorable than a Christian one, or a layperson demonstrates a greater level of consecration and service than an ordained minister.
The Greatest Gift
✝️In Matthew 22:36-40 and Mark 12:28-34, Jesus is asked by one of the religious leaders, “Which is the greatest commandment in the law?” Jesus responds “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: You...
Enemies of the Cross
The Apostle Paul never mixed his words.💬 In his writings✏️, he was always intentional about being direct and honest. In Philippians 3, after demonstrating his own commitment to Christ and asking that we follow his example, he describes a group we ought to avoid.
Contentment✨ is an interesting concept in the world of entrepreneurs since all entrepreneurs are looking for more business, more customers and more money. How do I remain content in a world that rewards the pursuit of more and views being content with less as defeat and failure?🏁 We also find ourselves in a marketplace environment...
In everything give thanks
We are to always be thankful to our Lord no matter what our circumstances are, because He gave us the greatest gift; the gift of salvation–a gift that never wears out. We ought to be thankful everyday, every hour, and every minute because without that gift, we could not experience abundant life on earth and would be condemned to eternal...
The Lord is my Chairman
The chairman🌟 is the highest ranking officer on the board of a corporation. Although there is a slight difference between the board chairman of a non-profit and a for-profit organization, the basic responsibilities are the same. The chairman presides over the meetings and provides leadership to ensure that the organization achieves its...
Sheep in the midst of wolves
Psalm 23 describes our Lord as a Shepherd that ensures provision, care, and protection for His sheep. Yet Matthew 10:16a has the same Lord, our Shepherd, sending us as sheep in the midst of wolves. Why would a loving Shepherd send His vulnerable sheep🐏 into the midst of wolves when wolves are predators that love to kill and eat sheep?...
The Power of Unity
The final step to overcoming spiritual warfare is a commitment to unity and oneness.👈 There is a not well known king👑 in the Old Testament named Nimrod. Nimrod was the great-grandson of Noah, a mighty hunter, and a great leader (Genesis 10:8-12). He understood the power of unity. He knew what was possible when the people are one...
Wise as a Serpent and Gentle as a Dove
Spiritual warfare is an active aggression by the enemy to intimidate us and keep up from realizing God’s plan for our life and business.
How to Pray
Knowing the power of prayer is one thing, but knowing how to pray is completely different🙇. When facing spiritual warfare, we must know how to pray. If prayer is simply talking to God💬, how complicated can it be?
Spiritual Warfare In The Marketplace
When someone running to become president🌐 of a country wins the elections, in preparation for them to take office, they begin to get access to highly classified information about the threats facing the nation; information that the public may not be fully aware of. Information🔑 that if many knew, they would live with fear each day.
