Fran and Jesus on the Job: Stress and Fatigue Part I

This is a conversation between Jesus and Fran. What Jesus says to Fran is true to Scripture, but it is also simply my imaginary conversation. The truth I want to convey is that for born-again believers, we have the incredible privilege of living in the presence of Jesus, because his Spirit is within us and […]

The Nature of Rattlesnakes

Play

PROGRAM D-7565 We’ve seen so many leaders in politics and religion who have been disgraced by immoral behavior and loss of integrity, and we wonder how they could have gotten into such a mess. Well, I think many times they just thought the rules didn’t apply to them. They considered themselves above the laws that […]

The Nature of Rattlesnakes

Play

PROGRAM D-7564 Have you ever picked up a rattlesnake? You’re probably thinking: “Are you kidding? I wouldn’t pick up a rattlesnake.” No, but you might do something worse: Let yourself be deceived by temptation and get bitten before you know it. The second mistake our friend in the fairy tale made was to listen to […]

The Nature of Rattlesnakes

Play

PROGRAM D-7563 I want to point out how the poor girl in the fairy tale managed to allow this snake to deceive her. The first mistake she made was to talk to that snake. When you see a rattlesnake, there’s really no need for a discussion. You know their nature, you know it’s not going […]

The Nature of Rattlesnakes

Play

PROGRAM D-7562 I remember talking with a lovely woman who had allowed herself to be deceived into a sexual relationship with a man. He had treated her kindly, and at that point in her life she was very vulnerable to kind treatment. It felt good. Then, when he invited her to spend a weekend with […]

The Nature of Rattlesnakes

Play

PROGRAM D-7561 I want to share a fairy tale that I think teaches a very important lesson: A young girl was walking through the woods one day when she almost stepped on a snake. She pulled back in horror, but to her amazement, the snake cried out to her, “Oh, I’m so glad you came […]

Learning When to Ignore

W1620 Learning when to ignore—it almost sounds like anything but a Christian message, don’t you think? Yet, truthfully, there are times when we need discernment about what others are telling us and we truly need to ignore them.  However, I want to reemphasize the importance of listening to others. It’s a wonderful way to show […]

Becoming a Godly Role Model

Play

PROGRAM D-7560 I want to really encourage you to consider the quality of a role model you are on your job. It’s very important that as believers working in today’s marketplace, we model what a worker should be like by Bible standards. Not long ago a good friend of mine changed jobs, and as she […]

Becoming a Godly Role Model

Play

PROGRAM D-7559 Role modeling may be a new term we’ve invented, but it’s not a new idea. Way back in the early church the Apostle Paul understood the importance of good role modeling. He wrote: For you yourselves know how you ought to follow our example . . .  we worked night and day, laboring […]

Becoming a Godly Role Model

Play

PROGRAM D-7558 I would imagine that some of you have never thought of yourself as a role model. Maybe that’s because you’re still young, or because you are not an assertive person, or you don’t have leadership gifts. But all of us are role models, and there are people in your life whom you influence. […]
