“…negative results have negative value…”

What are we contributing to our career, our family life, and our spiritual walk? And, more importantly… what are the results of that contribution? Remember this: An action can only have value if the result is “positive.” Negative results have negative value. If we are hired by our company to provide a “certain skill,” we […]

“…For many, He’s the Outsider…… standing at the door, trying to help…”

Dissension within the ranks:  Healthy disagreement is a preamble for success.  There’s different kinds of dissension, I believe.  For an example: simple dispute vs. infighting; or simple friction vs. conflict; and a little discord vs. strife.  Sometimes, even, companies will literally fail from implosion, due to serious infighting; especially amongst senior management.  Then, too, there […]

“… It’s an unfortunate day, when we withhold situations from our Spouses…”

Are we holding back “anything” from our employer, our wife, or friend?  Do we have a hidden agenda, that is only revealed, maybe even partially, when we think the time is ripe, or appropriate…maybe not ever.  Are we being selfish on purpose? Or, are we being deceitful?  Sometimes we hold back the “extra” abilities, or […]

“…We’re called by different names at different time-frames in life. …”

What name are you known by?  At a much younger age, I was known as Charlemagne Juelawell Samuel Aloysius Brookshireburgerstein… with a nick name, known simply, as “Sam.”  Seriously…my brother called me SAM, because he thought it made me sound “tough.”  It didn’t work…of course.  My brother was known as Walter, Walt, WW, or Bubber.  […]

“…If you a bit of a LONER, then you’re sucking air before you even get started….”

Have you ever noticed how “friendly people,” have plenty of friends?  This is not rocket science.  This is actually God’s plan for God’s people.  He wants us to be happy, well adjusted, and have plenty of friends.  He does not intend for us to be isolated, and alone.  Genesis 2:18 – Then the LORD God […]

“… If we don’t have a “sense of obedience,” then everything tends to fall apart in our lives….”

Love is the source of obedience.  I’m not going to do it that way…it’s my way or the highway.  I’m going to take this, because no-one will ever know the difference.  If the contract doesn’t require me to do it….I’m not going to do.  Let him wait his turn, just like me…I’ve waited two hours, […]

“…My point is: how often do we ignore the obvious. Are we so preoccupied that we don’t notice important things, events, or people, around us that DESERVE our attention….”

Are we properly Respectful to God, Our Lord Jesus Christ?  I recently realized, that while I thought that I was…I wasn’t.  I had an occasion to borrow a Bronze Crucifix (depicting Christ Crucified on the Cross), and had it sitting on my dining-room table for several days, before returning it.  I must have passed that […]

“…A “little respect” will go a long way; it’s like frosting on a cake….”

  Always treat people with RESPECT…. Galatians 5:20-22 tells us: Idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.  But the fruit […]

“…I pride myself in self-control. It is an exercise in mental, emotional, and spiritual strength….”

Self-control…. I don’t take it for granted.  Even the success of a diet is based on self-control.  In fact, I can’t think of anything that we, as humans do, that is not subject to self-control.  There is a stopping point to everything that we do.  Or, should I say… there should be a stopping point.  […]

“…If we lay our lazy tail in bed… because someone in our “family” doesn’t want to go…”

CAPITALISM …VS… IDOLATRY:  Well its kind’a the same thing…isn’t it?  It’s the worship of something ahead of God.  If we worship MONEY, or the making of money, or free enterprise; then we are Idolaters.  If we worship materials things…cars, boats, our house, our job, a person, sex, gambling, drinking, a place, or thing(s)…above God…then, we […]
