Where’s That?

I am working on a paper that I think will be titled “How to Use the Bible.” The chapter I just finished doing the research for is maybe going to be titled “The Value of Context.” Through the years of being me, I have frequently been asked, “Where’s that in the Bible?” That’s a valid question […]

Values – Foundations

Your Life grows up from or is choked out by the Values that are at the Foundation level of what you allow in your space. The three Values that make up the Foundation of your life are IMPOSED, COSTLY, and FRUITFUL. The FRUITFUL Values are those actions that are what you are ordained to be […]

Our ministries flow out of the gifts, influenced by our resources: who has parented us, what skills we have, who our neighbors are, and what other gifts are functioning around us.

Befriending Jesus

A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a difficult time. * In a little village named Bethany, Jesus had 3 friends: Lazarus, Mary, & Martha. They welcomed Him. They even welcomed the people to whom He was a Friend – His disciples and followers. They served Him and His friends […]
