"And remember those less fortunate..."

Posted by Colby Kinser on

Have you ever prayed something like, "And Lord, please remember those less fortunate" or "Lord, we know that not everyone has this freedom/benefit/blessing that we have..."? You're thanking God for something good, like dinner, and then it strikes you that not everyone has that good thing, and...

Giving is an Investment

Posted by Cliff Coss on

It is now seven months into a yearlong project to write a series of twelve articles, one each month, on some aspect of giving.  This month I was pulled up short, redirected really, as I was meditating on Philippians 4:17 (ESV) Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that increases to...

Is that US?

Posted by Colby Kinser on

I recently received a great question about the Bible, asking if perhaps Isaiah 18 is describing the U.S. We read lots of passages and think, "Wow, that sounds eerily familiar to our situation." And then we read what happens to those nations in Scripture! They get crushed, burned, defeated...

This week, we celebrated the American holiday of Independence Day, the 4th of July. For our society, this day is a day off of work (for most) and a time for fireworks, waving flags, wearing red, white, and blue, giving props for those who have served in the military, and perhaps even remembering...

Pardon the Mess

Posted by Colby Kinser on

Business and leadership training almost always has some version of "start with the goal in mind." Envision the desire outcomes, define your goals clearly, and design toward the finished product. You can't measure progress unless you know what you're shooting for. And it all makes sense. So, we...

Learning To Give Cheerfully – Is That Possible?

Posted by Cliff Coss on

Have you ever wondered how to become a cheerful giver? Does every appeal for funds seem like another financial burden someone wants to lay on you? How can you maintain an eager joy to give when every day’s mail brings another unsolicited request for funds? In 2 Corinthians 9:5-7...

Two Hats, One Noggin

This Saturday, about an hour south of Atlanta, I will have the privilege of officiating the wedding of our goddaughter. This is very likely the closest I will ever come to performing the wedding of a daughter. We have known Ashley since she was 11 when we first moved to Dublin, GA. We quickly...

Nothing to Lose

0

Posted by Colby Kinser on

I wonder what it would be like to have nothing to lose. I know this seems a bit morbid, but if some disaster came and wiped out everything I have to lose, how would I live? If my family, my home, my work, and my possessions were taken away from me ... or I was taken away from them ... how would...

Be Safe!

Posted by Colby Kinser on

I know she meant well. But to be frank, I got very, very tired of my mom telling me to "be safe!" every time I left the house. Every. Time. Never mind that I do the same thing. That's different. We are careful parents as a society, especially compared to childrearing from just a few decades...

Show Me Some Identification

0

Posted by Colby Kinser on

Where is your identity located? Not your driver's license or student ID card, but your identity? What gives you the sense of who you are, why you have value, how you want people to know you, what would be a fitting epithet for your life, and so on? Most believers can properly answer...
