Do people feel more alive when they are hunting Pokemon, watching a football game, or investing in publicly traded companies?  Central to human life is not Pikachu, the NFL, or the stock market. If any of these things or any other preoccupations like money, entertainment, hobbies, work, and vacation reside at the center of heart [...]

Changing Worldview For Life

Bruce Olson at 17 years old made his way from the midwest of the United States to the Motilone tribe in Bogota where he has invested the last 57 years.

Armor of God: Epicenter of Victory for Daily Life

Many years ago, David Wilkerson blamed the anemic preaching of God’s word in America for the judgment he saw coming upon the nation. If anemic application of God’s word brings His judgment, then a whole-scale return to the truth can be our deliverance. Truth is the sword God provides for us to live for Him [...]

The Best Time for Something Amazing

Some use the phrase “when pigs fly” to describe something wonderful that could not happen to a person in a million years, something truly amazing in life.

Transforming the Ambition of Money

The movie theater is dark, the house drape drawn. Then the curtains separate, the projector whirs. Then clicking, flapping of film, and slow muffled sounds speed up to a musical overture. Black and white images appear on the screen in the front of the darkened room.   This used to be a common occurrence at a movie house. What does this have to [...]

Taking Charge of The Future

Who is in charge of our lives? Is it the cell phone company? That sounds crazy I admit, and no one in his or her right mind would say something like that, but here's what recently happened... I opened my cell phone but could not do a thing. The company had frozen the screen until I responded [...]
