Long-Lasting Success Is Up to You

Long-Lasting Success Is Up to You

Long-lasting success is not a result of pedigree or family name. Not alma matter, or even lack thereof. Name recognition or who you know might give you a foot in the door, but making something useful of your career is up to you. You’ve got to do the hard things. Show up. Study hard. Work…

One Process That Should Never Be Standardized

There is no scope creep when it comes to God’s plan for you. He’s the one who called you, and He’s the one who’s going to see you through. Paul closes his first letter to the church in the city now known as Thessaloniki with an exhortation. “May God himself […] sanctify you through and…

When you feel threatened, don't waste the oxygen.

Save the Oxygen and Follow Christ

Sometimes it’s easier to see a speck of sawdust in someone else’s eye than it is to see the plank in your own (Matthew 7:3). It’s human nature. When you feel threatened by the perceived success of a coworker or the fear of corrective action from a supervisor, warranted or not, it is easier to…

Spiritual Maturity Requires No Resume

Paul’s writing in the New Testament pulls no punches. And his brutal honesty about his own shortcomings and colored past serve as encouragement for us all.

Community Without Condition

God loves unity. There’s no doubt about it. But it can be so hard to get along, especially when working with others with whom you share nothing in common outside of your office space. Even if you work with others who love Jesus, the way they approach Him might look a little different, even weird…

When You Can’t, Lean In

Prayer in community is one of the most powerful tools Jesus left us with. It allows us to hold one another up in the good times and the bad. You don’t have to have it all together – and neither does everybody else! Sharing our needs, requests, and even our shortcomings, creates space for others…

When Failure Hits

When God doesn’t deliver, and failure breaks you, the thought of getting up again … well, it can be crippling. Failure in any part of life impacts all parts of life, and that includes work. In 2 Samuel 12, David deals with the consequences of a horrible sin he thought he had covered up. He…

Fire Back With Scripture

“Jesus’ refusal was curt: “Beat it, Satan!” He backed his rebuke with a third quotation from Deuteronomy: “Worship the Lord your God, and only him. Serve him with absolute single-heartedness.” – Matthew 4:10 (MSG) Temptation has a way of making us question God’s goodness. It started in the Garden and continues today. It paints a…
