What Happens to My Christianity When I Go to Work?

Would the people who see us on Sunday recognize us on a random Wednesday at our jobs? When we are faced with ethical dilemmas or something as "innocent" as office gossip, do we stand up for what is right? Hold our tongue and wait for it to be over? Or do we cross a line we can't quite see because we squint a little? How do we maintain a Christlike character during the challenging work week?

Am I a Double-Minded Christian?

We all want to be successful at whatever it is we are focusing on. How do we do it?  Be single-minded. Have your vision clear and your energy directed. It's not easy.  We end up distracted, or we start something but don't finish or we even rationalize our way out of triumph. How do we put habitual double-minded thinking behind us and reach forward towards true, godly achievement?

Are Your Treasures Really Worth Treasuring?

Think about your life for a moment. Think about those things, people, places, experiences and memories that are most precious to you. The few thoughts that top this list are in all likelihood some of your greatest treasures. Now, think again about your life for another moment. Think about the things, people, places, experiences and memories that you obsess about – the images that you replay again and again in your mind that go ‘round and ‘round on that insatiable loop of conditioned and driven brain activity. The obsessions that top this list are in all likelihood your treasures as well. Kinda disturbing, isn’t it. So, what do we do about it? How do we learn to isolate and diminish those things which we cherish but hurt us? How do we instead focus on and appreciate those items that bring true honor, blessing and joy?
