Great Plays In Sports!

If you are a fan of any major sport, you have probably spent time going over some great plays! Whether it was a clutch hit in baseball or a great shot late in a basketball game. Maybe it was a great goal in football (soccer) or ice hockey. A great pass or pass rush in American football, or your favorite tennis player finally won the match! It is tremendous fun to watch and rejoice over a great play made by your team. Having your team win is (for a sports fan) absolute joy and a great reason to celebrate. What about the great plays by the losing team? Do you even remember them? Let’s talk.

Supermarket Approach

It is easy to get caught up in the things about this life that we don’t like, especially for some of us. We tell ourselves and others that listen that we have ‘high standards’, yet in reality, we are … very intolerant of those that don’t think the way we do. To tolerate those ‘fools’ is unthinkable, yet in reality, the only one losing sleep and peace over those fools is … the foolish one. Here’s another way to look at other people and life.

The Teacher

Learn to see everyone as a teacher. Some will teach you by offering admirable qualities. Others will show you traits that you may wish to soften in yourself. Some will teach you to be yourself, because of how authentic they are. Everyone can offer a lesson. Be grateful for every relationship, no matter how long or short! Be grateful for what you have, which so many do not!

Scripture Mistakes!

So many people claim to love scripture, yet don’t live their lives accordingly. True, each and every one of us is “off-track” and none of us has a totally clear and complete picture of God nor God’s plan. I have encountered many people that deeply value reading the Bible, which is good. However, I see little evidence in talking with them that they value their relationship with God. So, let’s have some fun (with no intention of being blasphemous) modifying some scriptures.

Christian, Christ-follower or Rescue?

Those who believe the New Testament found in Bibles go around calling themselves Christians. Some have decided that “Christian” is not the best word for them and have switched to “Christ-follower”. There is nothing wrong with either word, as both have solid roots. I have met some “Christians”, who are proud of being one, yet when I look at how they live, at how they treat others, I get confused about what they say is their value system! To be honest, it’s sad. I prefer

Digesting 24/7

When we eat food, hopefully, our bodies digest it. This process starts in the mouth. As my meal gets to my stomach, my stomach juices/acid gets to work. However, real digestion starts in the intestines. Once I am done digesting what I need, I dispose of the rest. Digesting poisonous or unhealthy food has negative consequences and should be avoided. I don’t think this process is limited to food. It also applies to how I process information!

Is Any Religious Group 100% Correct?

The main focus of John 3:16 is God’s love for people. He loves ALL the people, all over the world, in all eras, ages, ethnic groups, and countries. So God loves everyone, EVERYONE? No matter when they lived, where they lived, what skin color or creed? Even, those _______ (you fill in that blank with someone that you just KNOW God can’t possibly love)? If, as some religions say, all of us are God’s children, which religion is the “right one”? Or is there a “right one”? Most zealots of many major religions would answer that question with a resounding “Yes, MY religion is the right one!” Well …

Serenity Prayer(s), for You!

Most people have heard of the Serenity Prayer. It was written by Reinhold Niebuhr and is extensively used by 12-step programs. It is powerful for those that let it help and guide them. It paints life with a very broad brush, which is why so many people have used it and love it. Not only am I going to share it with you, but I will also share some additional niche versions that many have found even more helpful. You will also learn how you can share a version with someone you love by putting their name into it, and then give it to them by email or text. I am very excited to share this with you!
