Leadership

October 19, 2018

“I’ve seen many natural born leaders in an organization get discouraged by toxic supervisors who were threatened by change or new ways of thinking. Such supervisors are set in their ways and revert to saying things like, “We’ve always done it this way, and that’s not going to change.” This type of mentality can cause the demise of an organization by hindering future growth. A good leader should welcome new ideas, assessing them fairly, and recognize that the individual that’s providing fresh thought is a leader. They’re putting the organization first. This is just the sort of person who should be valued and provided with mentorship that will help them continue to grow as they continue to progress in their careers within the organization. “

Hearts

“Our hearts are like a bucket of water on a very cold day-they will freeze over unless we regularly smash the ice that is forming. Though we know truths about God, we can very easily lose the sense upon our hearts of their reality.” -Keller

Comparison

September 7, 2018

Comparison is the suffocating thief of joy.

True with our marriages.

True with our jobs.

True with our bodies.

True with our walk with Jesus.

True with our abilities. True.

Godliness + Contentment= Great gain.

Change

Anger

August 9, 2018

“The clearest gauge of whether anger is right or wrong in its expression is whether it acts to condemn or to offer help.” – David Powlison

Plugged In

August 9, 2018

“Universal principle for appliances, life, family, church, and community: “In order for things to work properly, they must be plugged in.”

We shouldn’t be surprised that we feel a lack of energy, purpose, warmth or connection when we have become isolated, unplugged.”
