Contentment vs. Ambition

Our culture seems to always be speaking to us in the competing narratives of: DO MORE vs. DO LESS. On one hand, we should all be doing our part of contributing and have dreams and goals that we are reaching towards and wanting to make the world a better place. On the other hand, we’re taught the importance of rest and contentment and being present and enjoying where we are right now. So how do we reconcile these two seemingly opposing streams of thought?

As an imperfect human being in an imperfect world full of imperfect people, is it even possible for us to see the value in every person? On our own strength, maybe not. But thankfully, because we have been redeemed by the generous love of a giving and forgiving God, we too, can begin to see others through a Heavenly perspective.

Kingdom Partnership: Local Church & Marketplace Ministry

In the midst of the excitement for God’s plan for the marketplace leader, we cannot neglect the importance of the local church.

Start Embracing the Value of Today

Both the past and the future do have their importance, however, giving in to the propensity to time travel in our thoughts and emotions can leave us missing the one day that we have right now–today! The present is our place of power. It’s where our decisions are made. What we do with today determines the moments that make up the story of our lives. Regardless of yesterday and preemptive to tomorrow, your today counts! Not only for you, but for those who will come after you.

A Pioneer’s Courage

I love the factual accounts of courageous American pioneers as they settled and developed western territories. I learn from the brave instruments of social justice throughout history as well as the behind the scenes stories of present-day leaders who actually care for society’s good. No matter what time in history, pioneers face fear’s tyranny; they also embody a determined belief that they can accomplish more while serving humanity in a greater or more significant way.

Discovering Personal Purpose

What is my personal purpose? This question can be very high stakes and very stressful if we allow it to be. It can lead to larger looming questions like, “Why am I here?” and “Does my life matter?” As Believers, the answers to these questions are found in our identity in Christ.
