We think we’re pretty good people for the most part, don’t we? After all, we haven’t killed anyone; we don’t lie – at least not to purposely hurt someone; and we certainly wouldn’t steal anything.  OK, maybe once – when we were little (you remember that pack of gum from the grocery store?). Perhaps a closer […]

Let’s face it.  If you live in America, you are rich. Sure, there are exceptions like those who can’t afford food or shelter, but generally speaking, if you compare yourself to others around the world, you are filthy rich. American Christians are among the wealthiest believers to have ever lived! There’s nothing wrong with being rich, but […]

It really is hard to believe that 2010 is over.  Seriously, where has the time gone? Now that I have a three and a half year old and a soon-to-be two year old, I find that time gets spent faster and faster. I always love this time of year.  I enjoy looking back over the […]

You’re out to eat for a nice meal and you strike up a conversation with the server.  You come to find out she’s a single mom, works two jobs to make ends meet, and is going to school to get ahead. Your heart goes out to her, but what do you do? You’d love to help, […]

With Thanksgiving having now passed and Christmas fast approaching, many people will offer well wishes to others. You will hear many cries of  “Happy Holidays” and “Merry Christmas” over the next month or so. I’m not sure if it’s the eggnog, pretty lights, or the prospect of getting great gifts, but we probably smile more […]

Why is it that we tend to be very charitable toward people, as long as it doesn’t get messy!? The vast majority of American Evangelicals don’t mind giving whatever change they have in their pockets to a homeless person, just so they’ll leave them alone. Or, they’d simply rather write a check to the church so the clergy can do […]

Recently I came across an article about Sam Walton, the founder of Wal-Mart.  It was a very interesting read, and I found some things I never knew. After doing a little further digging about Wal-Mart I found an article quoting George Will, who had this to say about the company: “[They] are the most prodigious […]

How to Honor God in the Workplace – A Business Owner With Integrity.

True Wealth

Last time, we took a look at what God expects from a manager or supervisor. We also mentioned that there were two kinds (or responsibilities) of “employers” discussed in scripture. The second type of employer that the bible focuses on is the business owner. In some small companies, this can be the same as the […]

Actually, there are two main types (or roles) of employers that the bible gives specific instruction about. The first would be the supervisor – the person who leads, gives instruction, […]

5 Ways You Can Become More Generous

Personal Finance

Generosity should be one of the leading marks of any Christian. Yet, so many of us are tight-fisted when it comes to our finances. Why is that? Part of the reason, in my opinion, is that money is our idol! If we were really honest with ourselves, we’d admit that we love it.  We live […]

How to Honor God in the Workplace – Instructions for Workers

Personal Finance

Did you know that when we go to work we have a chance to honor God? The way that we perform our job and interact with our employer says much about our relationship with God. Does God REALLY expect us to obey our boss? We are commanded by God to be obedient to those who […]
