A daily dose of spiritual exercise for men in various stages of their Christian walk

Just about every newscast, website, radio show, and newspaper is doing some kind of review of the past year. We love to remember what happened, what went well, what didn’t go so well, and even who died. There’s nothing wrong with a little nostalgia once in a while, but it can be a trap if […]

I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve heard non-believers or rather immature believers make a comment like, “I can’t believe he’s had to deal with problems like that since he’s a Christian!” With all due respect, this exhibits some fundamental misunderstanding of what it means to follow Christ. At no point did He […]

There are two schools of thought on how to help your employees grow and mature. One says that you should focus on their weak areas and help them to get better so they have a broader skill set. Another says to take advantage of their strengths and don’t force them to spend time in areas […]

I will admit that I like the natural rhythm of software projects. There’s a startup phase, a grind-it-out phase, the home stretch, and the close. Each phase has the potential to make the next phase easy or hard. And the rush of accomplishment only comes if you’ve done it relatively well. Still, it’s always a […]

“Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me.” Psalm 103:2 NLT I like this translation of this verse. I think it captures the feeling a bit more for us today. For the vast majority of the world, Christmas is over and it’s on to […]

I hope you all had a great Christmas and enjoyed both the time with family and the opportunity to glorify our God. While surfing the web in my post-dinner haze, I came across a story about something being referred to as the “Christian Winter” that added a serious tone to the day. We’re all familiar […]

“And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name JESUS.” Luke 1:31 The name Jesus in Aramaic is Yeshua which means Yahweh saves. His name was prophetic and loudly proclaimed what the purpose of His life would be. The Creator of the universe came to us. […]

“Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid, for […]

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results” – Unknown To an engineer like me, this makes perfect sense. If you claim to have invented a new process or discovered a new branch of science, you should be able to repeat your results. Furthermore, if your […]

Just did my fantasy basketball draft last night. It always amuses me to think of a bunch regular guys sitting around debating the relative value of some of the best athletes on the planet. What an odd business for those guys to be in, though, where you rarely get to decide who you will work […]
