Love relentlessly Sometimes, those of us who know Jesus and have had our hearts regenerated expect those who don’t know Jesus act like they do. We get mad or frustrated with them for doing things that people who don’t know Jesus just do. What’s even worse is we can sometimes even stop showing grace towards them, and begin to treat them in a very unloving way.…

Look for opportunity One major hindrance when it comes to the outreach we experience in our life is our lack of vision for it. It’s understandable, we’re busy.

Generosity It’s something we hate to talk about, but our finances really do say what we invest in. The things that are important get our finances and the things that aren’t just don’t. For most of us we use our money and our things to build our own futures and our own castles, but what do we do for others? How often do we buy a meal for a friend, give a gift just…

Gifts   We’ve all got talents. Some are more obvious than others, but we all have them. Some people are very financially minded. Others are generous. Some are great at speaking. Some simply have a social personality that can work the room. We’re all gifted with different talents and traits. And most the time we use those talents to add to our own value. At work, we…
