    Pause

    There’s a lot of truth and encouragement that has been shared here for the last couple of months. How have you used it? Has it changed you? Your thoughts, your emotions, your actions? Has it renewed your relationship with God in any way? Has it transformed your view of work and business? I believe that the value of knowledge and revelation lies in its use. There’s no point stacking it up like trophies on your shelf if it’s not doing any good in your life. And that requires intentional application. So today, we pause and reflect. What have you done with what you’ve gained from this blog so far? Go…

    Firm Foundation At Work

    Why are you a Christian? Why do you believe the things you do? Why do you make the choices that you do every day at work? For some of us, our faith is inherited – we were born into a family that adhered to Christianity and we followed suit never really considering any other alternative. Some of us stumbled into Christianity at some point in our lives – you found God, perhaps more it’s more apt to say He found, and you’ve journeyed together since then. And there are certainly those of us who are straddled between faith and the world in an impossible act of balance and convenience. Having…

    Character

    I look at the world around me and I see reasons – loud, obnoxious reasons – why it doesn’t pay to do the right thing. More aptly, how people are not just getting away with doing the wrong thing, but actually being rewarded for it. With it, a sinister lie is creeping into many hearts – it’s useless to bother. Doing the right thing doesn’t pay off so why bother? Doing the right thing is just giving me more grief and problems so why bother? The unfortunate truth is that this is not new. None of it is. Throughout Scripture and human history is evidence of ages where wickedness seemed…

    Are Healthy Workplaces A Myth?

    How do you deal with workplace stress? Perhaps, I should start with this – do you deal with workplace stress? By dealing, I don’t mean trying to rest it away or fighting for a few days off to relieve the pressure that’s built up. I also don’t mean just quitting the stressful project/job because that doesn’t guarantee that whatever tension you had accumulated up and until that point will magically go away. I mean, actually evaluating the source of your stress as well as the impact it has had on you and finding healthy ways to address it. Toxic workplaces and work cultures are such an unfortunately common occurrence that…

    The Power Of Kindness

    There’s a lot that happens in life that we have little say or control over. But the one constant in every situation is the choice we have over how we respond to the varying circumstances of life. However powerless certain situations may make us feel, we still have choices. One of them is the choice to extend kindness. Kindness is easily mistaken for weakness but it couldn’t be farther from it. It takes strength to think of another more than yourself. It takes strength to extend grace when what you really want to do is lash out.  It takes humility to realize that you’re living in a glass house of…
