How to Be Rich

March 5, 2014

Rich is a matter of perspective. There is always someone richer than you and someone poorer than you.

My wife, Lindsey, wrote blog post which went off the charts with traffic right around Christmas this past year. The post was entitled,  “Kid’s, We’re Rich!”

In the post she offers this definition of wealth:

“I think God defines wealth as having enough to provide and care for your family and a bit more to do the same for some of those around you. If you are able to do that… you are rich… Instead of defining our wealth by how much we can consume, we should define it by how generous we are able to be. First to our family and then beyond.”

The entire post is worth a read! Take a look HERE!

Boasting in Jesus

February 6, 2012

We are wrapping up our 7 Minutes a Day series in Galatians today. Paul finishes up the letter by challenging the believers to walk out grace in a few specific areas of their daily lives. 

Read Galatians 6

1. He starts by telling them to walk together in this life of grace, bearing one anthers burdens. Grace is a message that unifies, works compete and divide. 

When one’s life is focused on grace, not works, it affects how we deal with others who are struggling. A believer’s response to sin in another’s life is to be one of gentleness; helping them walk through the struggle and eventually change.

2. Grace is generous. Paul encourages the believers to share resources with each other, even with your teacher. In doing so, Paul gives place for those who work as pastors, teachers, or missionaries to earn support through the work of the ministry.
