Effectiveness

  |  0 Comments

We must change our view of what effectiveness really is. Though we want to use our minutes and seconds wisely, biblical effectiveness is not necessarily us ramming as much as we can into 24 hours. It’s not us putting our head down and plowing the field with as much vigor as we can muster.

Instead the effective steward is a focused watchman whose senses are attuned to the slightest hint of an opportunity. He’s a hawk on the lookout.

Essentials

  |  0 Comments

There are a lot of essentials in life- for instance:
If you are going to make bread, you must have dough.
If you are going to fly 30,000 feet above the ground it is essential to have an airplane.
If you are going to fish, you must have bait.
If you are going to speak, you must have vocal cords.
If you are going to think, you must have a brain.
If you are going to drive you must have a valid license.
If you are going to make a phone call, you must have a phone line.
If you are going to eat, you must have food.

His presence is essential if we are going to know success in the Christian life.

A doctor examined his patient

A doctor examined his patient and concluded that nothing physical was wrong with him. He said, “You probably have some business or social problem that you should talk over with a good counselor. I dealt with a case very similar to yours only a few weeks ago. This patient of mine had a $5,000 debt that he could not pay. Because of his financial problem he had worried himself into a state of nervous exhaustion.”

“And did you cure him?” asked the patient.

“Yes,” said the doctor. “I told him just to stop worrying, that life is too short to make himself sick over a silly little scrap of paper. Now he’s back to normal; he stopped worrying.”

“I know,” said the patient, “I’m the one he owes the $5,000 to, and that’s what I’m worried about.”

A guy was on a plane that developed engine problems. His buddies knew that he used to go to church when he was a kid, so they begged him to pray. Finally, he gave in to their request and said these words, “Lord, I haven’t bothered you for 20 years, and if you get me out of this, I promise I’ll leave you alone for another 20 years.

The prince of Grenada, an

  |  0 Comments

The prince of Grenada, an heir to the Spanish throne, was
sentenced to life in solitary confinement in Madrid’s ancient prison. It was
dreadful and dreary, but he was allowed one book – the Bible.
– So he read it for the 33 years he sat in prison
– Hundreds of times
– When he finally died, they found notes scribbled in the stone
– It went like this:
– Psalm 118:8 is the middle verse of the Bible
– Ezra 7:21 contains all the letters of the alphabet
– Esther 8:9 is the longest verse in this book
– No word or name is found having more than 6 syllables
With a distancing eye, he spent his whole life reading words, but
never heard God speak
– Never attuned himself to hear God’s gentle whisper
– What a waste!
