✝️Among the nine characteristics of the fruit of the Spirit, the eighth characteristic is gentleness–which is also known as meekness. Most people in the world confuse meekness with weakness. Even Jim Collins, one of the greatest minds of the best business practices of our time, refers to meekness as weakness in his book, “Good to...
👏 Do you realize that the number one cause of sin in the life of most Christians is not the Devil but a lack of self-control? ✋ We constantly blame the Devil for things that we have the power to control ourselves.
✝️In the early days of my ministry, I went through a wilderness experience. I was tempted to leave the local church where I came to Christ and was discipled.💪
✝️Goodness is the sixth characteristic of the fruit of the Spirit. At first glance it seems like there is not much difference between kindness and goodness, but when you dig deep into the differences between these two words you see that they are significantly different. Kindness is an expression of how one feels on the inside while goodness...
Wait Upon the Lord
✝️Before the days of electronic surveillance, speeding tickets meant being delayed an additional 30 minutes to 1 hour because of the time it took the police officer to fill out the necessary paperwork.
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...
