But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
A few years ago when I was forty-six, I strapped on skis for the first time. And, last week I skied for the fourth time. Although I have improved, I still fell—a lot. I fell when I was getting off the ski lift. I fell when I was standing in the ski lift line and almost got pinned under the chair lift. (I know. It’s funny to me now, too.) I fell multiple times while I was attempting to ski on a new part of the mountain that was steeper than I was used to.
After we got home on our last day on the slopes, I was a little discouraged. My goal was not to fall down on the mo...Read more

Quality of Life
Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm. Proverbs 13:20
What does it mean to have quality of life? Good health? Harmony at home? A happy heart? Financial security? Freedom of speech and worship? A fulfilling career? Grateful and content children? A meaningful marriage? A life of significance? Peace with God? Probably some of these elements and more make up a life worth living—a quality life.
Moreover, the quality of our lives is determined by the quality of our relationships. Who we spend time with is who we become. If we spend time with those wise in their finances, and if we pay attention, we can become wise in our own finances. If we are intentional in our faith, we will worship ...Read more

Honor one another above yourselves. Romans 12:10
Every day my pride and ego relentlessly seek to smother whatever breath of humility is in my heart. Once the virtue is vanquished, my ego continues its conquest with Napoleon like occupation of my entire being. I feel immobilized, frustrated, imprisoned. Pride’s symptoms begin to expose my sickly soul: reactive anger because I didn’t get my way, harsh words from projecting my hurt on someone who represents the person who has hurt me, or a smug sense of superiority, since I am surely more spiritual and more successful than most. Oh, how ugly, sad and selfish my pride and ego must seem to my humble Savior and servant Jesus.

"But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble." Psalms 59:16
Times of trouble are ever looming in our life. They are approaching us, surrounding us, or engulfing us. Times of trouble are never too far off, so we should not be surprised when they arrive. It may be relational trouble born of a marriage gone bad. Maybe you’re in trouble at work because of someone else’s choices. You trusted a peer to perform with excellence, but they let you and the company down with a subpar performance. Now some hard decisions have to be made. Perhaps financial cuts and layoffs are the reality of the situation. The business has gone from times of abundance to times of trouble. Indeed, the naïve act as if things will always be all right, while the prudent plan ahead (Proverbs 22:3). Wise is a leader and his team who plan for lean times with prayerful and financial forethought.

Lack of Faith
And he did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith. Matthew 13:58
