So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what God wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.View More Where’s My Place of Service? – Richard Leslie Parrott, Ph.D.

Spiritual leadership! This is a different kind of leadership, and it includes YOU. We have leaders in all segments of our world: politics, the military, education, business, business, social services, the church, etc. Now, all this “leadership” is good and I have consulted and taught leaders in all these areas. But, this is not the kind of leadership I am speaking of in this blog.View More YOU, A Spiritual Leader? YES!
I’ve known and worked with a wide diversity of people in the last 40 years of pastoring and teaching. I’ve worked with people who lived in homes that were so big and so beautiful; frankly, it made me nervous to go inside. And, I can remember a fellow with crooked teeth and scars on his face who, every Sunday, walked from the Union Gospel Mission to sit on the second row in church.
Here is what I know: Scratch any person, and they will bleed. Everybody carries a load. I would like to put a badge on every person that reads, CAUTION! HUMAN BEING. HANDLE WITH CARE.View More A Compassionate Person
