God Provides where Hate Divides is my response to the recent events that are tearing this great country apart. It's a Christian world view in a time when emulating Jesus' love, life and sacrifice has lost favor. I hope you enjoy my musings, but more importantly I hope you find love and peace in troubled times.

Let me start by saying that any Servant Leader who is in a position to make an impact is also in a position to face disappointment and failure. Success and failure go hand-in-hand. In fact, I think most readers would agree that for many, disappointment and failure seem...

“Believe nothing you hear, and only one half that you see.” – Edgar Allan Poe

I tend to revisit this topic a few times each year, but it seems so important that I cannot ignore it. Here’s a scenario in which you may have found yourself. You are at the water cooler (kitc...

"Silence! I kill you."

Ok, so Achmed the Dead Terrorist, one of Jeff Dunham’s most popular creations, isn’t what I would call the poster boy for servant leadership. But he and Kenny Rogers’ “The Gambler” manage to give good counsel in an area that servant leaders should...

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I just get tired. I get tired of doing all the work and watching someone else get all the benefit from it. I get tired of doing the right thing and ending up on the wrong side of the promotion. I get tired of working 80-hour weeks...

“That’s not my job.”

It would be nice if the Bible was crystal clear on everything and if there was no controversial subject. In some areas, the Bible is perfectly clear – Jesus Christ, Son of God, only way to heaven. (John 14:6) Pretty simple. Love God and love your ne...

That’s a good lead in, but it’s also patently false. There was a time in my career when I spent considerable time briefing chief executives or advising one or two executives on my a...

“In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” (Acts 20:35, NIV)

The purpose of a servant leader is first to serve, then to lead....

“For lack of guidance a nation falls, but victory is won through many advisers.” (Prov 11:14, NIV)

Wisdom is such a simple concept to grasp, but so hard to gain and even harder to express. I’m sure everyone has that friend, spouse, brother, who always has a bit of wisdo...
