Episode 27: On Point



Everything is meaningless!  So says the wisest man ever to live.  So what does that mean for us as business men & women?  How do we reconcile that and still find purpose in our jobs and businesses? In today’s episode, we’ll dive in to what that looks like at a biblical, personal, and business level.


Episode 26: On Follow-through



Our word is our word, and despite the overload of clutter and distractions in today’s world, it’s more important than ever for us as men & women to commit to that which we are committed to.  Today we explore the importance of follow-through, but with a unique spin.


Episode 25: On Sharpening



The old adage is “sharpen your ax” before cutting down the tree, but how often do, in business, forget about that!?   Believe it or not, sharpening your ax is also biblical.  Listen in to our live conversation about how we can apply this, very practically.


Episode 24: On Stewardship



When it comes to stewardship, we often think about objects, but what about our businesses, time, and other resources? Today we discuss how to use everything we have for His glory.

“For it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted to them his property.” – ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭25:14‬ ‭ESV‬‬

 

  • The earth and everything in it, the world and its inhabitants, belong to the Lord. – Psalm 24:1
  • Riches and honor come from You, and You are the ruler of everything. Power and might are in Your hand, and it is in Your hand to make great and to give strength to all. – 1 Chronicles 29:12
  • Whatever you do, do it enthusiastically, as something done for the Lord and not for men, knowing that you will receive the reward of an inheritance from the Lord. You serve the Lord Christ. – Colossians 3:23-24

Episode 23: On Joy



Joy is sometimes a choice, a perspective. How can one person get so much joy out of something that another may not even recognize?  Comedians and business experts have a lot to say about joy, and so does scripture – in this episode we look at the intersection of the 2 in this thought-provoking Thoughtful Thursday.  All shows are recorded live.


Episode 22: On The Gray Area



Some things are easy to see as black/white issues.  The gray area emerges in complex situations, moving parts, miscommunications or simply pushing to do something that really can’t be done.  It frequently isn’t malicious as much as just an easy route to take.  We know man was made with a conscience, so why isn’t this topic easier?  Today, we delve in…

Episode 21: On Margin



Margin is ”unscheduled time that you can use in whatever way refreshes you, or helps you get back on track with life”. It’s your breathing room / emergency fund / time to reflect on life. Do you have it?  Scripture has quite a bit to share including in Genesis and Mark, which we’ll explore in this episode.


Episode 20: On Worry



Does worrying actually help anything? If it doesn’t help, what can we do about it.  Sometimes, the practical application of “not worrying” is the hardest, even despite scriptural encouragement: Mathew 6:34: Therefore, Do not worry about Tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own


Episode 19: On Enough



When is enough, enough?   After you win a local competition, then it’s to regional, then to national, etc.  How about with possessions?  Cars & houses?

  • Ecclesiastes 5:10: “whoever loves money never has enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income. This too is meaningless”

Episode 18: On Connecting



All of life is connected, there are no isolated habits.  At times, it can be easy to isolate/separate different aspects of life, at least when it comes to improvement.  For example, working out = body, quiet-time = soul, business conference = work, etc.  Today, we look at how connected everything is.
