It’s Time Christians Pray for Injustice

How many here love justice? Looking around the room, I see every hand raised. Justice feels good, doesn’t it? Christians like when things are fair. But here’s the thing: Scripture never called us to love justice. In fact, it tells us to love mercy instead. We are supposed to act in justice, but we aren’t called to…

The Giants Will Be Defeated

You know that big struggle in your life? The one you might be afraid to battle because it appears to be a giant? Maybe it’s something that seems impossible. Well, if you don’t defeat that giant, somebody else will. God is determined to defeat giants in the world. But you get to decide if he’ll…

Discover Your Opportunity for Growth

Was talking to a friend who’s self-employed. I asked him how he’s doing financially, and he said he wasn’t making as much money as he’d like. Granted, I don’t know if anyone makes as much money as they’d like. But he had a specific figure he felt would be a comfortable income for him and…

It’s Free! (With a Catch)

I had the privilege of joining a man from Mexico on a podcast last week. He interviewed me about some of my projects for churches and how to infuse creativity into a church that might be resistant to such things. On these podcasts, I’m an open book. Everything I know that I think could be…

The Internet Sharing Problem

On Tuesday, I shared a video that I thought was absolutely hilarious. A reporter announced a new team member in the field that was about to be live on air for the first time. This was her debut story. Thanks, Mitch. “The people er been take du the. I bil gin top fin garb.” I…
