THE WHOLE-HEARTED LEADER: Exchanging Pain for Joy


THE WHOLE-HEARTED LEADER PILLAR 2: INTIMACY Exchanging Pain for Joy   Childlike faith – what does that mean to you? Can you remember when you were three or four years old, and just sitting on your father’s lap? Or maybe more recently, when you were the parent and your child was just resting in your embrace, fully relaxed, fully secure, knowing they were loved? When Jesus was asked who was greatest in His kingdom, He pulled a little child to Him and told His disciples that whoever humbles himself like a little child is the greatest in the kingdom. Whoever can [...]

Kingdom Character: Growing in Peace


If you turn on the television or radio or observe social media, much of what you’ll see is trouble, heartache, and fear. Peace is something that people desire to have down deep inside, but it’s not easy to achieve without God. Jesus knew that we would face trouble in this world when He said to His disciples: “These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). We can count on His peace to sustain and comfort us during difficulties. [...]

Kingdom Character: Growing in Loyalty


Our loyalty is something that companies are after on a daily basis. Just about every corporation has a customer loyalty program to try to entice us to remain loyal to their products or services. But loyalty didn’t originate in a boardroom or in the mind of man; God came up with the idea. In fact, loyalty is something that characterizes God, and we should strive to be more loyal in our own lives too. Loyalty Defined Loyalty and trustworthiness (or being worthy of trust) are closely intertwined. Integrity and faithfulness are similar concepts as well. They make us think of someone [...]

When you have to stand in line, what is your attitude like? Be honest! If you’re like me, you probably struggle a bit with keeping a patient attitude. And the truth is, none of us ever chooses to stand in the longest line at the grocery store! Likewise, have you ever had someone tell you, “Don’t pray for patience because then the trial will come”? But we do want the characteristic of patience displayed in us because our Father is so patient with us. Let’s take a close look at how to cultivate more patience in our lives. Patience is Related [...]

Kingdom Character: Growing in Honesty


Probably for most of us, honesty seems like a pretty easy topic. We don’t outright lie to people or tell lies, so honesty is one of those “been there – done that” subjects. But I think that God wants us to grow in character in the area of honesty and to challenge ourselves to really live blamelessly and above reproach. What does scripture say about honesty and lying? First of all, the Bible is clear that Satan is the “father of lies” (John 8:44), and Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life (John 14:6). Not only is lying condemned [...]

Kingdom Character: Growing in Compassion


What comes to mind when you think of compassion? Maybe giving to the poor … helping someone in need … your heart being moved for someone else and their situation. Perhaps you think of the compassion that God showed in sending Jesus to reconcile us to Himself. Regardless, one thing is certain: God’s heart beats with compassion. Therefore, we need to also cultivate a character of compassion. God’s Compassion The Bible is full of references about the compassion and lovingkindness of God. “[God] crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion.” (Psalm 103:4) “Remember, O Lord, Your compassion and Your loving kindnesses, for [...]
